No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Looks good on your resume

Cons

Annual culling of bottom 25% results in a really nasty competitiveness...e.g., nice to your face then stab you in the back. Extremely poor work/life balance. Difficult to move up career ladder.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and friendly upper management. Loved the enviroment and people always seemed happy to be there. It was a great time and experience.

    Cons

    Long hours with overnight shifts. Not the best for work and life balance, but still manageable. Some of the employees were not the best to be around, but it will be like that anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and make sure to relate to lower level employees

    Pros

    Its a fun place to work with a competitive benefit package.

    Cons

    Management has no communication with employees and poor recognition for top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the "favorites" system that they run off. People who deserve the promotion should get the opportunity to show you their potential. Instead, they pick who ever kisses the most a**.
