    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    10% discount when buy something at Amazon.

    Cons

    Country manager has quite limited communication ability and is isolated in the organization. Nobody make decision. Culture is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    It is time to replace all management team, especially country manager, to make the company better in both numbers and culture. It is one of the worst companies.
