    Pros

    -Friendly co-workers -Good work environment -Freedom to move fast without fear of punishment from breaking things

    Cons

    -General lack of focus on running the business; everything has become about improving downtown which has been a tremendous distraction and makes little business sense (I know pitch -- create a downtown tech community and be able to hire from that talent pool -- but it's all cover for the fact that Tony is over Zappos) . I can't believe that Amazon is OK with this. -Tony, Zappos CEO, has stated publicly that he spends "100% of his time on Downtown Project." -Lower-than-average compensation due to no e-commerce competition in the area. -Reduced health benefits over the past year (you don't need to pass increased costs onto your employees just like you don't have to pass on fluctuations in UPS shipping prices onto your customers). -Spin factor: the company has become fond of sugar coating everything instead of communicating with us like adults (see health benefits, downtown project, tech projects).

    Advice to Management

    -Put company first, community second. -Hire a CEO that focuses on Zappos, not downtown Las Vegas. -Hire a CFO and COO while you're at it.
