    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazon has come a long way from the first days of shooting product. Frugality is the name of the game.

    Cons

    Hardcore work environment with no comforts. A rubber pad to stand on (cement floors) not enough space to set up your tools. Etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a plan. I feel like everytime you come in to work it has all changed. From art directors vision to how we shoot a certain product to work flow. Tons of wasted money from this .....
