Current Employee - Area Manager  in  Fernley, NV
Current Employee - Area Manager in Fernley, NV

I have been working at Amazon.com

Pros

Company is fast paced and very dynamic. You are afforded the ability to work with some very intelligent people and some very hard working people. The opportunity for growth is huge as the company is constantly growing.

Cons

You are at the mercy of the customer/business needs. This is only a con if you are not willing to buy into the company and share a common goal. There is a high probability of working nights and weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So far I am very satisfied with my managers. I have heard of less competent managers, but I have had no business interaction with them.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    Challenging environment, which is changing from an enterprise level Biz dev environment into full on call center

    Cons

    Very political, where you feel like a cog in a machine. The management seems to think that tenured employees are very replaceable. Lots of political nonsense which creates a general lack of morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the attrition, focus on development of your employees. We're not replaceable and the overall work environment is getting steadily worse with each employee that leaves.

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    If you fit the culture, then there's no better place to be working in retail or IT

    Cons

    If you don't fit the culture, or desire a work/life balance, then this isn't the place for you
