    Fast paced, high stress, high pay, but tough on the family

    Current Employee - Area Manager in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good for management. You can also get promoted faster than just about anywhere else. You are judged on your performance, not just who likes/dislikes you.

    Cons

    Expect 80 hrs/week from mid-Nov through December, 60-70 for another 6 months of the year and 50 for the rest of the year. Micro-management is the standard, not the exception. It takes senior management in each building to make even the smallest changes. It is common for one shift or department to leave another in a bad place in order to make goals/set records.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop leadership skills along with management ones. Allow lower-level managers some freedom to make decisions. Develop teams, let them grow.

    Great pay and benefits but no life.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, name brand company. Never a dull moment. Some of the people are really cool to work with. Truly focused on customer experience.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. People move between departments so often they never master anything. People enter new departments without basic skills. Senior management too concerned with taking credit for subordinates' work. Little respect for each other in the management ranks. Most times we just fought to protect our kingdoms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect others. Actually listen in conversations.
