    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are empowered to make important decisions, it did not feel political, decisions acted on quickly and performance is measured objectively. Good career prospects

    Cons

    At least the UK offices are UGLY and they make no effort at all to improve them.
    Pay is just barely in the market range.
    Overall very frugal.

    Advice to Management

    There is a point on diminishing returns when saving money is more expensive than spending it. Example if a decision gets delayed because it is hard to get travel approval.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people; fast-paced environment; strong performance; constant effort to improve operations
    Everyone I met was energetic and eager to improve operations in the warehouse. They are quant hounds who know how to use data to make decisions so this is a great place to test your analytical skills.

    Cons

    Burn out in staff at fulfillment centers leads to chronic short-staffing and unhappy hourly workers; Christmas peak season is a crazy time and not for the faint of heart! Having grown at 30% CAGR for years, the strains are really felt on the ground in delivering to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your hiring practices to reduce staff stress
