I worked at Quidsi full-time

Pros

Snacks, Insurance and Benefits, fantastic Co-Workers, discount on websites

Cons

poor management, schedules are a joke if you haven't worked for the company for 2+ years, you are graded on your calls and emails which is stressful and grading system is biased, barely compensated for doing a great job, there is a point system so if you are late or if you give a last minute notice you will not be able to come to work because you are sick, you get points (6 points and you are fired).

Advice to Management

Quit

    I worked at Quidsi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well-stocked kitchen
    Nice view of the Hudson

    Cons

    Very high turnover due to:
    Senior management who doesn't communicate down well, and then later places the blame on those subordinates
    More emphasis placed on where your degree is from (Ivy) rather than if you are smart or likable to work with
    Too many in senior management positions who have a chip on their shoulder
    Sweatshop hours - no work/life balance - try to leave work before 6pm (to go and work at home) and get the stink eye

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring/promoting people who are miserable people

    I worked at Quidsi (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, great people and great customer service. An environment where you are surrounded by smart, dedicated and passionate people who are customer focused. People work hard but there is a strong sense of fun. The senior executive team shows its appreciation in multiple ways. I was amazed at the number of negative comments posted since it is one of the best companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    If you are working on a launch of a new business it can be very demanding in terms of hours as you ramp up.

    Advice to Management

    As part of a larger organization, amazon, and as they grow larger you hope they do not lose their culture. Besides having great people, what makes quidsi fun is the lack of bureaucracy, autonomy it gives it's people and it's willingness to take risks.
