Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good salary, some nice people, lots of change, mangement open to ideas.

Cons

Expectation is to work long hours, weekends and holidays. Starting salary is nice but yearly increases are extremely low. Some managers take the fact they work for Amazon.com as a green light to be rude and arrogent.

Advice to Management

Work on ways to reduce turnover.
