    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for mobility

    Cons

    Very toxic culture. People spend way too much time trying to find fault in other people's work. People try to find fault and then go to managers directly to complain. Many people 2-4 layers below Bezos simply don't care and it shows. Bad behavior and bullying is supported and encouraged. It's called being Amazonian. Ego is big and is a very big issue as well. Also, collaboration is very rare and plagiarism is rampant....

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
