I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

Prosthe ability to impact your business quickly and in an action oriented way
smart talented people; some of the smartest I've ever worked with
good benefits

Consconstant competition breeds need for everyone to want to be 'right' in the room and be the first person with the answer
stack ranking of employees during review time weeding out good or great employees because not everyone can have a great review statistically
lack of expectation for management to actually do a good job managing. Working out issues is the employees problem

Many do not have the training or ability to manage. The rise by force of will culture leads… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
