Poor work environment and limited welfare. Because frugality is the key leadership in Amazon.

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

    Pros

    Minimal, Good brand on your CV.

    Cons

    Expectation to work all hours of the day - way beyond the norm of reasonable. People were expected to work evenings, weekends, whilst on holidays etc. I also agree with another review that mentioned about the rapid growth - whilst existing employees were expected to suck up the double or triple workload this created.
    I understand the values - but they took frugality to another level. I have never worked anywhere quite so shabby, it made me depressed walking into the office every day.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own advice - you claim to be customer centric - what about thinking about the employees in that every now and then?
