    Literally the worst place to work in America

    Pros

    The only pro to working at Amazon is that you can bring your dog to work and only if you are chained to your desk all day as dogs are not allowed in conference rooms and common areas.

    Cons

    In 1863 Lincoln freed the slaves and in 1995 Jeff Bezos found a loop hole. He/Amazon offer you a droll worthy package that is impossible to turn down and after a few weeks of trying to figure out how to circumnavigate the behemoth company a switch is flipped and you feel like a slave everyday. I have worked for some of the most notorious sadist in NYC and none of them hold a candle to the managers that I have encountered during my year at Amazon. I am trying desperately to leave. I was hired for a job that was completely wrong for me and when I went to my manager I was told I wasn't allowed to transfer to a new division because my manager did not want to give someone else his problem. When I brought him 9 years worth of performance evaluations from my previous company where I was in the top 1% of employees he did not even look at it pushed it back at me and said "I won't look at those because your previous employers standards are no where near Amazon's." If they relocate you they hold a debt over your head equal to the price of a new Honda Civic. I belong to a support group of current and former employees who all have similar stories about being mistreated and emotionally abused.

    You Get What You Put In

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.
