    To much of reviews and approval gets even to move small things. Everyone constantly agrees to disagree. If you are playing the role of orchestration, it could be frustrating at times.

    Pros

    There are no positives that out weight the negatives.

    Cons

    Everything negative that you have heard about working at Amazon is true. 15 hour days, 6 days a week, abusive management and overly stressed hostile employees. And a review process that is more of a popularity contest than a true review. There is nothing that makes the misery of working here worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and treat them with respect instead of as disposable property to be used up and thrown away.
