    "They claim frugality is their main value - you'd better believe it."

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities. They prefer to recruit internally, so once you're in, it is possible to take your career to the next step. Virtually everyone you come across outside of work is an Amazon customer, usually a happy one - it is true that the level of customer service is something to feel proud of.

    Cons

    Absolute lack of transparency from Management, and very, very corporate environment - you've got to be ready to say you've got 'Amazon DNA'. As mentioned in the title, frugality is one of their core values, and it is one that applies to employees at all level. Salaries aren't amazing, and there are very few perks. In the team I worked with the turnover was very high, which was worrying.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your skilled staff! And be generous, at least a little.
