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

Pros

Great Opportunities for Promotion
Great work atmosphere
Good pay package.

Cons

Too much bickering in depts
Not enough communication
Lack of Leadership
Too many Team leads Managers in each dept. (ever heard too many cooks spoil the broth)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

NIp any inter departmental bickering in the bud before it affects the whole dept.
More communication is required we shouldnt have to chase up agencies they should be chasing us once we give them a querie.
Better leadership i can see improvements already but much more needed.

    Pros

    Amazon allows for changing the floor and systems around you. Nothing is sacred as long as safety and quality are not compromised , and the cost is kept cheap. It is a maturing company that is still not bogged down by corporate waste, and needless paperwork. They pay you very well.

    Cons

    Amazon hours are long and demanding. Work-life balance is a constant struggle, especially when peak rolls around, then one nearly lives at the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great opportunities, but not for everyone. Growth starting to stress the network and the company.
