Challenge to adjust with strict adherence of 14 principals
Compensation is average
Amazon is built to be Darwinist
Would you work for this company?
Yes, I would. I have experience working at "dot-com" companies. I thrive in that environment. There are great opportunities and growth within my specialty - digital marketing.
I personally wouldn’t. It is more demanding than what I am looking for in a job and career.
I would not be interested since its not my field of study. Also, this is not the type of corporate culture I would want to be apart of.
