Pros

There is a tremendous pool of talent working for Amazon. Anyone joining the company will be able to make a contribution from day one, while being able to take on responsibility early on. The opportunities for personal development are many.

Cons

The base pay isnt great. The share package seems attractive, however, you salary increases and incremental share grants take into the account the shares which you have already been issued, so in reality, there is no upside if the share price outperforms.

Advice to Management

Amazon UK is doing really well, keep doing a great job. Make sure you pay your staff in a manner which reflects the unfortunately location.

    Pros

    Excellent Starting Pay Company helps you to learn the system and supports you but you must make the first move. Communication is sometimes lacking with the reasons things are done. They attempt to motivate the employees but forgot that at times a "presence" and "good job" in person goes a long way. They are good at encouraging employees during peak periods but should also do this throught the year.

    Cons

    Very slow to promote to Amazon from the temp agency would rather wait and see how long you will tough it out. Let employees of the temp agency know if and when you are going to hire to Amazon. the information given by the temp agency is misleading at best.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who are proving that they want to be there and work hard to prove it
