I have been working at The Zappos Family full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people. Casual atmosphere. Free coffee. All the stuff you get at most good companies these days.

Cons

Low pay even for seniors positions. Change in title and responsibility does not equal increase in pay. Some sr. managers and directors have no idea what they are doing (others are good). I personally left because I was teaching my boss more than he was teaching me.

Advice to Management

Pay your people what they are worth and get rid of unnecessary layers that just create bureaucracy. And remember, good culture is created by good people.

    Pros

    None unless you thing working in a sweat shop is good

    Cons

    If you don't know what your doing go work for Zappos. They have so many employees that have no idea how to do their job. It amazing that they can turn a profit. Upper management doesn't communicate to the employees. Zappos uses their culture as an excuse to hire or fire for not being a culture fit. Working there is like walking on egg shells, always thinking if you say and do something will it be viewed as anti-culture and will you be fired for that. If anything I'd say it's more like a cult than a family.

    Advice to Management

    Being open and honest is one thing, but not having answers about the future direction of the company is another.
