As the number one online retailer in the entire world, Amazon has harnessed a reputation for being affordable, dependable and convenient, leading the creation of the 'Amazon MBA' graph. The infograph tells you everything you ever really wanted to know about the company. Since Amazon sells books for so cheap, how is it able to do this when others cannot? Well, the company doesn't need to collect sales taxes and cuts costs at every and any opportunity (including the CEO's salary -- a welcome change in the eyes of many Americans for sure).

However, the glaring issues currently facing Amazon as a company are the work-life balances of their employees, which rank considerably lower than Facebook or Google. Further, while the company has a cash reserve of $5 billion, it donates nothing to charity.
