Pros

Excellent culture that rewards performance
High hiring Bar ensures that you are working with smart people at most times
Diversity of business allows an individual to find opportunity to learn and grow within the company

Cons

Deliberately chaotic .. May not suit people who like a structured environment to work in. (Some people like this environment though.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Larger vision of the direction company wants to take should be shared with more frequency with the middle management. This helps them align their effort with the overall objective of the company.

    Pros

    Co-workers who are self-motivated; You can have an enjoyable work environment; Associates have a voice and, if persistent, can affect change; Management is starting to make positive changes in how they interact with Associates; Annual Pay reviews determine increases; Monthly performance bonuses and annual gift of Stock options;

    Cons

    Co-workers who are no longer self-motivated and not held accountable; Manager rotation requires you to constantly train new Managers; Continuous improvement is actually just Continuous Change as new Managers implement old solutions; Changes to processes and/or standards are poorly communicated or ignored; Annual Pay reviews are based on Local averages and do not factor Cost of Living; Managers do not have the time to develop Associates for the next level; Management turn-over (resignation) is high;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are struggling to fill and keep leaders due to the failure of preparing our direct reports for advancement; Favoritism due to performance in specific task(s) inhibits the development of Associates and the company; Do not sacrifice the Safety, Quality or Productivity of the internal customer in pursuit of your departments goals; Please change how you interact with each other; Do not assume Push Back is only because others do not understand your idea;

    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    THe people here are smart. You'd be wise to leverage their wisdom to get ahead. All in all its a great work experience where you get a lot of input and feedback from your peers. Also the work is quite interesting depending on where you work.

    Cons

    One thing I didn't like was that sometimes tasks such as fixing bugs can get quite annoying but hey thats software development for you
