    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    smart colleagues,a lot of flexibility with working hours and implementing ideas

    Cons

    bad bosses screw up the system

    Advice to Management

    Some bosses are bad bosses and their input should not hinder future hiring. I was a contractor and did a wonderful job launching a pilot program. My boss was in the hotseat with his boss and saw me as a threat- He gave bad feedback about me which has hindered me getting future contract gigs there and I did a wonderful job. The system sucks
