Why all the hate toward Amazon?

I’m not from the bay area so may be a bit naive so can someone please enlighten me why people trash amazon here all the time?
I consider amazon an innovative company. AWS was as innovative as iPhone and continues to innovate.

When you reference amazon do you mean just the ecommerce company or am I missing something here?

    They pay low, have crap benefits, don’t care about their people. At all.

      I just got a job at Amazon and they doubled my salary. Don’t think they pay low at all

      Your baseline is New York Life Insurance. Doesn't count.

      Exactly. They pay just enough to avoid mass exodus from top talent

    Amazon is great to customers and shareholders. Amazon is not so great to employees. Most people trash amazon because of the last thing, not the first 2.

      Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle. 🍌🍌🍌🍌

    Amazon likes to burn out employees and doesn’t give the high TC to soothe the pain.

      Would stay away. Not what it used to be. The acquisitions and sale over the last 10+ years has created nothing but panic and low productivity. I’ve done relatively good. TC ~200. Used to live in NYC but now remote in Phoenix. ~15 yoe all with TR.

    I think Amazon is known to be great to customers and basically anyone who sees the company externally. Internally, some teams/orgs are a mess and there's lots of politics because the bar is low.

    That being said I love Amazon and I've definitely grown a lot here. Pay is nothing crazy (still competitive) but I'm also not a TC chaser.
