I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They keep you informed about what is going on in the company benefits are great and pay is getting better

Cons

They go threw employees like no other company I have ever seen I was only there for a little over a month and employees were dropping like flies it is a concern for everyone that works there everyone who works there asks how much longer till their number is up I personally know of at least 18 employees being fired just since I was there some deserved it but most where excellent employees that were fired for ridiculous reasons like stretching, telling management a concern they had, and even for writing the wrong date on a piece of paper for overtime.if you're honestly considering working for this company do yourself a favor only plan on it being extremely temporary while you look for another job....unless of course you are absolutely perfect and flawless in every way just because you show up when you're supposed too and work at 110% is not enough for this company!!!!!!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have an employee that is a great employee you should keep then working for you and not make it impossible to keep working hard for you

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

    Pros

    Never dull. Fast paced with plenty of things to do.
    Great role and responsibilities.
    Truly cares about customer benefits.
    People respect and listen to you if you are smart.
    Great brand value on your resume.

    Cons

    Fast paced. Takes a toll on work-life balance.
    As they have very small teams there is not enough fair distribution of responsibilities. Some people get overburdened and burnt out.
    Not enough mentorship. You either make it or you are asked to leave. No body cares about investing in people and making them successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More mentorship. Invest in people and make them successful.
    Don't overburden employees. Hire more people instead.
