    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    What I love about working at Amazon is that you get to be surrounded by brilliant, hard working AND kindly people. It's extremely rare to find a company where one's opinion and ideas (always based on data) are listened to and even valued. Nowhere else have I felt I could have such an impact on my company and customers (internal and external). It's a thrilling and exciting company to work for.

    Cons

    Sometimes evolution is based more on communicating well than actually working hard and not all avenues are made available or known.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazon allows their employees to take a great amount of ownership over ideas brought to the business. It is very exciting to be part of such a large organization that can still feel very much like a startup.

    Cons

    A high level of ownership over your business also comes with great responsibility. The heavy workload in such an ambiguous environment can be difficult to manage at times. You need to draw boundaries for yourself, no one will do it for you.

    Advice to Management

    So much is expected of employees that recognition is rarely given. More positive reinforcements and higher energy coming from the top would be beneficial to the morale of the group.

    Pros

    I´ve never seen in my professional career a company like amazon which really lives and breathes the company values, expressed in the leadership principles. Every company has its history and a culture to be proud of or not... The difference amazon is that the Leadership principles are part of daily work and reflected in any behavior. Those leas to great success in the market and drives customer centric behavior,...

    Pros

    Hoch motivierte und sehr intelligente Mitarbeiter. Viele Möglichkeiten, sich intern weiter zu entwickeln und auch eigene Themen zu entwickeln. Unternehmerisches Handeln wird gefördert. Marktgerechtes Gehalt

    Cons

    Amerikanischer Großunternehmen mit entsprechender Arbeitsumgebung. Sehr hohe Zahlenaffinität, großer Leistungsdruck, häufig wechselnde Vorgesetzte, sich schnell verändernde Strukturen, wenig Handlungsspielraum und mitunter starre Prozesse. Schlechte Behandlung von Mitarbeiter seitens der Vorgesetzten. Krankhaft sparsames Unternehmen. Viele Mitarbeiter verlassen das Unternehmen bereits nach drei bis sechs Monaten....
