    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good peer workers, casual dress code

    Cons

    -managers are not intelligent, but very stubborn+ not willing to communicate. They micromanage associates. They know nothing about real work, but just push associates to meet the goal. They always change policies, tell lies, trying to deceive associates to cover up their faults and mistakes.
    -Compared to other Korean large companies, Amazon perks are very poor.
    -when there is internal hiring or opportunity, only the ones favored by management are selected. Their performance/work ability do not matter much. If you are a "yes man," never questioning decisions, you will be okay. They will tell you to speak up and ask questions, but do not be fooled by their lies. They will not like you.
    -THIS IS A "CALL CENTER."
    -Inconsistent schedule, you need to be able to work on weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to be more intelligent, have more transparency, and communicate more openly. Associates are angry. Many of them want to leave this place ASAP.

    Pros

    Internship at AWS gives you a chance to learn and have experience in conducting and managing diverse projects which cannot be experienced in any other company

    Cons

    You can feel that it is not that oreganized
    No one really teaches you how to do things, you have to be proactive to know/learn something
