Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Freedom to do things your own way; whether its the project at hand, your attire, when you come into work, you name it. Pretty flat hierarchy from what I can tell, but I was only there for three months and I have no idea if there is any bureaucracy higher up; I was able to attend and even contribute to a number of decisive meetings with the team.

Cons

Little bit stingy; lets just say that you don't get pampered like those at Google.
I've heard sentiments of programmers feeling like resources as opposed to assets.

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

    Pros

    Good pay for entry level position, Amazing benefits that begin on hire date. Holiday time and pay included.

    Cons

    Weird shifts times, resulting in short work weeks with long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Look at adding a third shift to cover overnights, while turning all shifts to 5 day @ 8 hours.
