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

    Pros

    The pay is competitive. The insurance is very good. You are given a significant amount of responsibility in order to develop.

    Cons

    You are required to work at least 1 weekend day every week. Compensation is based on the time you have worked for the company, not performance. Responsibility and expectations at the management level can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get around the facility more often. Meet the people in the departments and give more real time quality feedback. Actionable feedback allows for more effective shifts.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern they provided great opportunities to try different projects and even meet with different departments and positions. Given a good amount of ownership and had great management and career leadership.

    Cons

    When starting as a new employee I was surprised by the lack of on-boarding effort and introductions, but that may differ depending on the department and timing. You just have to ask a lot of questions and put yourself out there.
