Approves of CEO

I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The pay is good, and there's a great work environment there, with many chances to prove yourself. There is a constant push to advance your career, and you are given many opportunities to succeed.

Cons

There are not nearly as many perks as working at a place like Google. Above the base salary, the only other good perks is the stock units, which is pretty standard at any big company.

The atmosphere of frugality goes too far sometimes, as it can be hard for an SDE to even get a second monitor

Advice to Management

Loosen up some and give your trusted employees the same kinds of perks that other top-notch companies give if you want to be considered a top-notch company
