Dystopian Machine

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsYou can say that you worked at Amazon. The cafeterias are fantastic. Great location. Beautiful offices. They present the illusion of the perfect work place.

Cons- To be a true "amazonian" you must drink the Kool-Aid if you want to survive.
- Zero work life balance. When they hand you a badge, you hand them your soul.
- Passive aggressive work environment with incompetent managers
- Ridiculous expectations set, changed, and reset on a weekly basis.
- The leadership principles are a joke
- Churn and Burn employees
- No women in upper management

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Many of them have great ideas that could make things happen there. Treat them with respect. Adding staff doesn't solve the root problems. While the company is extremely customer centric, you may want to consider the employees and become more employee centric. Your attrition rate is directly related to how you treat your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
