Amazon has the reputation of being the world's online store, but to its employees and ex-employees, it has a reputation of being an onerous employer. One wonders how much longer it can grow with a reputation as a brutal place to work. At some point, it won't be able to recruit talented workers because they will know before going in that Amazon is undesirable. Jeff Bezos doesn't appear to be publicly concerned about what employees think. As founder of the company, he is the principal driver of its culture and the unhealthy environment, which employees claim exists, stems directly from him. He and his executives will have only themselves to blame if workers take action against the company.
