    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is ok.
    You get a chance to try out the beta products before release.

    Cons

    Ridiculously poor leadership. They will get employees to do their work for them, lie about decisions they have made if they don't work out and take credit for other peoples work.
    Tasks are given after 7pm and expected to be done before 9am the next day.
    Backstabbing blame culture.

    Advice to Management

    Train your leadership team. If a complaint is made against them, do something about it. Don't just wait for people to start leaving.

    I have been working at Amazon as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, with lots going on in several country. Think for yourself and self-service attitude.

    Cons

    Help is not always at hand when you need it, due to the self-service attitude. Workforce spread over several countries can make meetings difficult.
