I have been working at Amazon.com

Pros

DIY attitude. The compensation was good. People were very friendly.

Cons

DIY attitude. If you are not used to patching things up with duct tape, then this is not the company for you. The management can be non-existent and ineffective at times. You must be the type of person who can work in ambiguity.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The supervisors were friendly and personable. The benefits were good.

    Cons

    They weren't fair with some of their policies such as being cross-trained in different areas. Also they forced overtime when not needed. Would not let the workers lean on something making us have to stand in one spot for 10 hours. The air inside the facility was harmful to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and treat your employees better.

    Pros

    Amazon is a force for Human Progress.

    Cons

    Everyone knows that Amazon sells at a deep, deep discount, to gain loyalty and market share. Amazon is a big bully.
