Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Employees are empowered to make important decisions, it did not feel political, decisions acted on quickly and performance is measured objectively. Good career prospects

Cons

At least the UK offices are UGLY and they make no effort at all to improve them.
Pay is just barely in the market range.
Overall very frugal.

Advice to Management

There is a point on diminishing returns when saving money is more expensive than spending it. Example if a decision gets delayed because it is hard to get travel approval.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Everyone is very cooperative and helpful. You always see good moods among the fellow employees. I had the chance to make big friendships there.

    Cons

    Too demanding work. You have to learn and do all by yourself - don't expect anyone to show you how to do your job. Look in the company internal wiki.

    Advice to Management

    I was very disappointed with the decision of the company to lay me off. I never had the chance to receive a feedback from my manager and never had the chance to understand why I was fired.
