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

    Pros

    Tasks are extremely simple. Expectations are not hard to meet. Benefits are really good with lots of paid time off. You get to see an amazing variety of products. Take home pay is ok. Job security. They have lots of contests when they need a lot of people to show up.

    Cons

    The work is boring and lonely and repetitive. Lots of rules. Management changes things very often. Poor morale everywhere. You will see very little of your manager, they may not even learn your name. Not much time spent on training, you sort of train yourself. Take home pay is ok. Hard to move up unless you're willing to work jobs/shifts no one wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the people that work for you. Earn their respect. Spend more time looking for talent and help them on their career path. Don't use gimmicks to keep employees working.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and beautiful Seattle views. The people who work at Amazon are among the best and very capable. Some of my best confidants have come from my coworkers. At Amazon I feel happy and like I'm making a difference.

    Cons

    There aren't very many cons when it comes to Amazon, but I suppose one possible con could include the fact that it's in the city, which personally I love but isn't some people's cup of tea.
