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

Pros

The other employees are great to work with and a few of the managers actually do care.
They always need help so overtime is no problem.

Cons

Low pay for the area.
The managers only see what they want to see.
There's no follow through with anything.
No actions are taken on people who don't follow the rules.
Carbon copy yearly review process.
Unless you're a "popular kid" with the managers than you're going no where in the company.
The managers don't care what you have to say unless your nose is brown.
The office area is like a playground; they're always throwing stuff at each other and playing games.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave your offices and watch how hard some of your employeess work. Stop judging the employees as a whole and realize that we are individuals. Stop catering to your "favorite" employees.
