    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Vacation time, personal time, UPT, stock, and being year over year ambassador for my department. Fun place to work most days.

    Cons

    When I first started at Amazon, I loved it. I loved everything about it and then I finally figured out how it really works when it comes to being a regular tier one associate. It's a popularity contest, high school all over again. Management enjoy it when an associate is willing to go above and beyond to kiss their butts. If you are willing to kiss booty then this is the job for you! Doesn't matter how hard you work, or how high your rate can be, it only matters if you can kiss tale. Management changes more often than you can change your underwear. By the time you finally learn the guy's name, he's already moved on and more likely than not, replaced with someone fresh out of college that doesn't have the slightest instinct on how to run a department of 70 or more associates. In the facility that I work at, there's only a handful of women that are part of management and it seems unlikely that a female will ever become a part of it. It's a man's world...literally! There's no communication between the manager and the associate unless it's during stand up at the start of the shift or after lunch. Sometimes I'll go days and only speak to my PA..(process assistant). The GM at my facility is amazing but it isn't efficient to find him every time I need assistance although it is quite effective. So, in basic words, amazon itself is a great company but the management team absolutely blows...unless you're a butt kisser!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and start appreciating your associates. Tier one's are the driving force behind amazon. We do the hard labor. Give credit where credit is due, not just to someone who plays the popular card. Teach your managers to listen to legitimate concerns and not to blow people off just because you think they complain. We're all not just numbers, bodies filling slot; some of us actually have plans to make our jobs a career but it's so difficult to move up and we go above and beyond until we get knocked down so many times that we just give up.
