    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at The Zappos Family full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Friendly co-workers
    -Good work environment
    -Freedom to move fast without fear of punishment from breaking things

    Cons

    -General lack of focus on running the business; everything has become about improving downtown which has been a tremendous distraction and makes little business sense (I know pitch -- create a downtown tech community and be able to hire from that talent pool -- but it's all cover for the fact that Tony is over Zappos) . I can't believe that Amazon is OK with this.
    -Tony, Zappos CEO, has stated publicly that he spends "100% of his time on Downtown Project."
    -Lower-than-average compensation due to no e-commerce competition in the area.
    -Reduced health benefits over the past year (you don't need to pass increased costs onto your employees just like you don't have to pass on fluctuations in UPS shipping prices onto your customers).
    -Spin factor: the company has become fond of sugar coating everything instead of communicating with us like adults (see health benefits, downtown project, tech projects).

    Advice to Management

    -Put company first, community second.
    -Hire a CEO that focuses on Zappos, not downtown Las Vegas.
    -Hire a CFO and COO while you're at it.

    I have been working at The Zappos Family as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interning at Zappos was nothing less than amazing. The work atmosphere is fun, people are friendly, and everyone is given opportunities to advance within the company. Zappos provides free food for their employees, they have awesome internal programs, and so many benefits for their employees.

    Cons

    This is not really a con, but the pay/salaries may seem lower than industry average. However, when you factor in the amount of benefits that the company gives to employees and scale it to the cost of living in Nevada, the compensation is competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work! My managers made my time at Zappos so much fun and beneficial. I learned more than I ever imagined in the span of 9 weeks.
