Great place to buy from, not so great to work for.

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

Pros

Above average pay for entry level warehouse work. The general attitude of Amazon is pretty nice at first. Training is thorough.

Cons

Long hours (10 hour days), tons of mandatory overtime, extremely strict policies, constantly changing procedures while still writing up employees.

    Pros

    They legitimately want to remain number 1 in the industry. If job security is important to you, then you definitely want to work with people who have a clue. Their is a healthy paranoia around staying number 1 and targeting seemingly unachievable goals (but somehow always achieving them).

    Cons

    You will work hard. You will not be able to slack. Slackers don't last long. If you think you can "work less but work smarter", this is not the place for you. People here are both smart AND they work hard. That's not to say their isn't a work-life balance. It's just that slacking is not culturally acceptable or tolerated as it is in other companies. Want to "ride it out" to retirement? Again not the place. As long as you work here, you will work hard, but also contribute to great things.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Seemingly endless headroom for advancment.

    Cons

    The point policy for IT is crap considering we are expected to show when the warehouse needs us but also held to a set schedule which is contradicting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you IT staff with the respect people in that position should be treated with. We are not an average floor worker.
