Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Speed to market, great talent, nice perks, cutting edge tech. I really liked being at the center of the rebirth of the retail giant after the .bomb commentary. Autonomous work environment allows for as much success as an individual can create.

Cons

Long hours, lack of work/life balance were challenging as I have a family and most of my peers did not. The internal company can be confusing, but I have heard that this has been alleviated of late.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is rarely boring. You'll do something different each day. Always a mini-peak season i e college sessions, holidays. You'll get in shape by walking, lifting , & prolonged standing. You will gain physical flexibility when you participate in group stretching exercises. Meet some interesting new coworkers; and maybe a few with whom you're already acquainted.

    Cons

    Might be a lot of long hours during peak time. Production quotas may be difficult to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. Empathize. Be forthcoming, especially with potentially bad news.
