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

Pros

-No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful! -Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met! -This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up. -Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

Cons

-It's hard work. Every day. -The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.

    Pros

    Good relocation compensation. 3 days off.

    Cons

    Amazon treats it's employees really poorly. You have no say in what shift you will work...you basically sell your soul to the company. Work extremely long hours. Extremely disorganized company. Don't offer any type of valuable training. Expected to micromanage even though they claim that it's not what they want to do. Very high turn over rate. Amazon doesn't do anything to keep it's managers happy. Work environment feels like a sweatshop.
