Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

fast paced, fun, 4 day week, new and improved onsite coaching, weekly pay, paid training

Cons

bell model based land grabbers with lacking personality skills, even if you work hard and know you are working hard, HR will make it their responsibility to find you a position where you can
struggle so they can follow company model of keeping the majority of their employees off the books. great for a young person. still in conflict over their original lease agreement since day one.
unable or unwilling to pay corporate debts to original investors.

Advice to Management

smile, you have a job

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

    Pros

    The people were great. I met a lot of people that I was happy to work with. Most of the area managers were good people.

    Cons

    They do not hire real managers. Most of them do not know how to deal with people. It is all data management which for Tier III or lower makes life miserable. We never had the help or people to accomplish what was needed. I personally got very little support from my managers.

    Advice to Management

    Need better communication. One purpose to a chain of command is that messages get passed down to those that need the information. Too often it was last minute information instead of planning and talking to people who need to be in the know. Very disappointed.


  2. "Great place for start up meets big company"

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very innovative, very start up and very smart people. You must be on top of your game to survive. There is an inherent culture to minimize internal politics.

    Cons

    Very relentless, high pressure, fast burnout.
