    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can learn a lot in a short period of time. Competitive salary and benefits. Dynamic and exciting company.

    Cons

    Those who get promoted do so in low and machiavellian ways. Leadership unable to retain quality employees and clings to toxic managers just to maintain continuity.

    Advice to Management

    Reward quality over loyalty. Listen to the canaries in the coal mine if you truly care about building a quality work environment.

    Pros

    Shifting pace, when it's fast paced a lot of hands on learning, when it's calm you have time to study.

    Cons

    When it's fast paced it can feel over whelming.

    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.
