    Pros

    Everyone you work with is amazingly intelligent. Work and technology moves at a fast pace, so you're always challenged to learn and become efficient at every task.

    Cons

    Little appreciation for employees and no recognition for the wins you have. Very difficult to have work/life balance as you have multiple responsibilities and projects that get piled on. Due to this being an online environment you can rarely "unplug".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive re-enforcement is great motivator and moral booster for your teams. Use it more -- it's really ok to tell someone they're doing a good job.

    Former Employee - Area Manager in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    Innovative, opportunity to impact changes easily, exciting fast paced environment.

    Cons

    They do not recognize results or hard work typically. They seem to promote and value the managers that spend the most time at the facility. Hours are extremely long for a manager. Typically 10-14hrs a day depending on the time of the year. The intensity of the environment in addition to the hours in impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazon is a great place to work but offers NO work life balance. The level of daily intensity required in addition to the long hours are unacceptable. You will lose talented employees if you cannot remedy this. I would have stayed with the company if I were single and didn't have children only.
