No MBA? No Future!

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Positive work environment. Dogs allowed at workstations. Online resources to self-teach.

Cons

Company actively pursues and recruits MBAs with no relevant experience and discriminated against Bachelor holders with relevant experience! No work life balance.

Advice to Management

You need a good balance of education and experience. Graduate school can't teach you everything!

    Pros

    fast paced, fun, 4 day week, new and improved onsite coaching, weekly pay, paid training

    Cons

    bell model based land grabbers with lacking personality skills, even if you work hard and know you are working hard, HR will make it their responsibility to find you a position where you can
    struggle so they can follow company model of keeping the majority of their employees off the books. great for a young person. still in conflict over their original lease agreement since day one.
    unable or unwilling to pay corporate debts to original investors.

    Advice to Management

    smile, you have a job

    Pros

    start you off with great sign on bonus and benefits, relocation company they use is great, and the stock options are great.

    Cons

    too many to list, no home work balance, growth potential too slow unless you uproot your family again. This is the reason the turnover rate at amazon is so high, will they ever get it?

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes and promote the people worth promoting, if they would stop moving people around every 2 months then the growth of managers would actually be seen.
