You can only be sucessful if you are single and want to work all the time

Area Manager (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

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

ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementAmazon 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Pros: Rock solid core business. Exceptional growth and cool projects all around.… Cons: Oncall system. SDEs are asked to carry on the pager in an oncall rotation.

Move away form the oncall… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
