    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

    Cons

    Operations Environment has high turnover Overworked High Stress Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

    Advice to Management

    Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.

    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.
