Current Contractor - Technical Sourcer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

The team I supported (Instant Video and Digital Music) was very collaborative and very involved with the business. Willing to share ideas and end result of getting the best hires for Amazon

Cons

Very competitive across the recruiting org, some in the recruiting functions willing to work as a team, others not so much.

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

    Pros

    Pay. You are well compensated for your time while hourly, but once crossing the bridge to salaried...
    stocks. Variable compensation bonus (monthly or quarterly) . You will work hard, but its challenging/interesting work.

    Cons

    work. life. balance. Have a kid? be prepared not to see them. Same for a spouse. Once you are a level 4 (area manager and up) prepared to work from home answering emails almost constantly. Its a fine fit for someone young/single but beyond that, the hours 50-55 regularly, 70-80 during "peak" if not more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the work loads better by hiring more staff. Standard work is a buzz word we throw about constatly, but its not practiced from building to building and shift to shift.
