Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

None I can think of.

Cons

No perks at all. Very very frugal till the point of affecting employee productivity.
Promotions are not based on how well you perform but based on how other PERCEIVE your leadership abilities. No actual deliverables taken into account.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    They pay good and you can get bonuses. Plenty of overtime when busy. You have a lot of room to advance.

    Cons

    Tiring, you get dusty and managers have favorites and act unfair about certain things.

    Advice to Management

    Be more fair to employees. Pay more money to good employees.
