I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a 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.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Fernley, NV

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Signing Bonus*- Or so its called. It's actually your stock grant for the next 4 years. Its a nice chunk of change assuming the stock price stays absurdly high. If it comes down to the rest of the market, your SOL.

    Cons

    Turn-style of management. Complete unfocused. All projects are flavor of the month for pathways guys to make their presentation to the VP. None of the projects actually sticks. Its all about numbers, but you aren't allowed to influence them using known best practices in the industry.If you are willing to lie, cheat and eat your young, you can move up...where there are bigger lies, cheats and canibals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build talent, don't try to hire it. Revamp the 'forced curve' evaluation program (aka Popularity contest and Pathways promotion point.
