Although it would still have these perks if they don’t change their culture then the turnover rate would still be the same. Millennials care about recognition and being appreciated and if amazon cannot provide that then many will quit. The way the management worked made the employees compete to be better. In my opinion that would make the company better and more innovative. You get rid of the employees who do not work as hard or do not have the talent to compete with the others to have the absolute best company you can have.
