No MBA? No Future!

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great company, great pay, can be a lot of fun, great place to lose weight, outstanding training! Love Jeff Besos!

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, lack of care and empathy for hourly associates by senior leaders at local facility, all about numbers (felt like a slave driver), low regard for former military members at the local level, little to no loyalty to anyone or anything (with the exception of production numbers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of General Managers who never show up during off shifts to observe the challenges of night shift personnel. Additionally, senior General Managers must attend and learn ACES.

    Not Good

    Pros

    * Chance to work and learn things that happen at a mammoth scale.
    * If you are a workaholic, this is your place to be at and learn things quickly.

    Cons

    * Work Environment not on par with good companies like Microsoft, Google or Facebook.
    * Attrition rate is too high among employees.
    * The frugality involved in almost every aspect of the company seems to help no one other than the CEO himself.
