    Pros

    There is lots of opportunity for career advancement if you are willing to put in the work and study Amazon's core leadership principles. The fast paced days makes time more bearable. The benefits may be a pretty penny out of your pay, but it is worth it when you need them. Stock benefits are a bit plus. Your voice may not be much as one sometimes, but Amazon makes sure it hears their associates in numerous ways such as associate surveys and round table meetings.

    Cons

    The vigorous work schedule messes with your life outside of work. The pay may be nice once the check arrives, but there isn't much time to enjoy it. They also do not have much help for single parents without spending the rest of your paycheck, which can lead to times of turmoil at home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step up your engagement and really hear what your associates have to say. Just a thought.

    Pros

    Innovation: A lot of talents in the company
    Lead ahead: A lot of rich resource knowledge and learning opportunity, you will grow with the co. and benefit the sucess
    Management: Productive, efficient, skillful, problem solver

    Cons

    Management: Micro management, electronic monitoring, poor communication
    Long hour: if it is not a torture-land it is a slavery camp. It is hard to balance family and work.
    Data Driven: Twist your arms and get the job done.
    Core value: misuse company core value on everything
    Change quickly: Decision was changed all the time, you begin your doubt about what is going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The manager should stop using people for new ideas, and later throw people away like an old shoes.
