    Pros

    Innovative and creative, Amazon pushes the boundaries of e-tailing.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. Get ready for long hours, weekends and a work life balance that will be throw off your social schedule. Amazon will due the bare minimum to fall in line with city, state and national laws and regulations but don't expect anything more than that.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to see high turnover as long as the current structure exists. Lack of respect, trust and career development are just a few shortcomings of the Amazon culture.

    Pros

    Rapid growth
    Strong leadership
    Lots of opportunities to grow and work on exciting projects
    Amazon culture (if you're a good fit)

    Cons

    None of the usual tech perks (e.g. free lunch, etc.) - in fact, frugality is a core tenet
    Promotions are a reward for having done the level up job, not a prerequisite to doing the job
