A Tale Of Two Amazons: Innovative Service Vs. Harsh Employer
Amazon has two images: the company consumers love and the harsh, demanding employer.By Ben Lawson | August 15, 2015
Consumers love to think of Amazon as the retailer that has everything, but there has long been another characterization of the company and CEO Jeff Bezos –– harsh and extremely demanding.
A story published Saturday by The New York Times was particularly critical of the company's management style, calling it a "bruising workplace."
The report detailed instances where employees were criticized for poor work performance while battling cancer, and at least one woman was forced to go on a business trip the day after having a miscarriage. (Video via Amazon)
