    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Obscene signing bonuses, great stock offers, lots of opportunity to move up and over, fast-paced

    Cons

    No support for work-life balance, grueling 70-80 hour weeks are pretty standard, benefits definitely sub-par relative to Microsoft/Google/Nordstrom, high attrition means disruptive turnover, parking is a nightmare. Oh and you can forget about Christmas - you'll be at the office like everybody else.

    I was actually told by my GM that "Amazon deliberately under-resources teams in order to squeeze innovation and automation from employees." No concern for employee health and well being whatsoever. I saw many people quit because of stress-related health conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and let employees have lives outside the office. Retaining talent means investing in more than just employee output - it means treating employees like human beings, not machines. No one can work 80 hours a week ad infinitum.
