No MBA? No Future!

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

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need a good balance of education and experience. Graduate school can't teach you everything!
