"Slave drivers"

Pros

Amazon.com is a great brand name for your resume - everyone will think your retail and/or cloud genius.

Cons

They are cheap, cheap, cheap, and expect you to work 24x7. They're so cheap that managers get little to no training, which is reflected in their immature management style (e.g. "you stay late while I go home," "plans, what are those?"). Those that have risen through the ranks at Amazon are part of a "good'ol boy" network (e.g. there is an all you can eat chicken wing circle that is exclusively men because what woman would want to stuff her face in front of co-workers?) and seem to lack the skills to succeed in comparable positions elsewhere - but hey, Amazon isn't the worst place to be stuck ;-)

Advice to Management

Communicate more, and get off your duffs and do something.

    Pros

    Quality of work is good, it is very fast growing changing environment so lots of opportunity to grow and learn new things. Good compensation, they give exactly what they promise on offer letter. No hidden charges.

    Cons

    Frugality misplaced. We spend more in areas we should not and save in areas we should not. Employee goodwill and loyalty is compromised as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work environment, do not cut work environment benefits in the name of frugality.
    Make the management more transparent, at least the immediate levels.
