    Pros

    Not what I expected!
    Some of the smartest, fastest moving business people in the industry who get to specialize in a small field all help propel your creative to be seen by more eyes than most any eCommerce (2nd to Amazon).

    Creative management nourishes talent with fun jobs that fit their expertise. Be honest about your strengths because there is probably a place for them!

    Love my time there, and push the industry's best creatives to give them a look.

    Cons

    Corporate cheers. :( I think Apple stores salespeople have a similar cheer, but its strange in an office place.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you can to make the creative team feel unique.

    Encourage your people to fail fast to find the right solutions.

    Pros

    * Work on latest tech to get the job done
    * See your work go into prod immediately and effect millions of customers daily
    *Good lateral and upward mobility options
    * Not a lot of attitudes from higher ups; just a couple bad apples here and there
    * Great work location, Sunnyvale or San Bruno and wireless shuttles in between all day
    * Very competitive salaries; not competitive with the Big boys, apple, fb and google but beyond that they do well

    Cons

    *Health benefits are ok not tops
    *They have a hard time differentiating treatment of employees in corporate from the person pushing carts in the parking lot at the store
    * They literally shove the Gay Agenda down your throat. There seems to be an invitation to a lesbian in tech, gay parade, or aids cure party every day; Without regard to whether it's offensive to the people receiving it. People should be able to opt into the notifications if they choose to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Back off of the gay agenda; it's just too much. Keep it to yourselves and don't try to force the whole company into support for it. Let people choose to opt into the notifications if they're interested, if not, don't force it on them

    Pros

    it's a paycheck, useful to get work experience, benefits, free food, free giants game, people doing the work are generally friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Lack of integrity, too many manager layers, posturing, politics, too many all hands, forced multi-tasking, very inefficient, lack honesty, lack real leaders, pretend to be Agile, unrealistic scope, poor product management, but some good ones, project managers not respected by product/engineering managers, testers slammed just before code complete, engineering managers say that's how ecommerce works. They don't know how to manage, so resort to command and control - worse than waterfall because there is no change control.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, look in the mirror, stop manipulating people to believe you care about interpersonal values
