Pros

Challenging, collaborative work environment with minimal bureaucracy. Interesting work that's on the forefront of the field. The customer-centric culture leads to steady innovation and quality products that are always improving.

Cons

Some teams have a rough on-call. AWS seemed a bit less laid back than some other departments.

    Pros

    Constant expansion
    Stock value consistently rising
    4 day work week (Kind of; you are pulling 60 hour work weeks minimum)

    Cons

    Constant expansion does not mean greater potential for promotion. The company is spreading itself too thin and has lost sight of its operations and supply chain structure.

    Expectation of managers to work 55-60 hours during normal weeks, 70-80 during holiday season.

    Will work one day of the weekend
    Will have to work at least 12 hours per day
    Zero job perks, i.e. free food, gym membership, discounts etc.
    Zero positive feedback, stellar performance is expected. Satisfactory performance is not tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Call Target and Walmart and and see what they are doing in terms of leadership development programs and culture. They have been doing it for a long time and if you keep on the path you are taking operations, you will eventually become an upset for your customers who are as well many of your managers who are no longer with you.

    I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company pays for insurance. The warehouse is amazing. They will have robots. Nice break rooms... free coffee, your so tired you can't enjoy any of it.

    Cons

    This place treats you like a robot!!! Runs as if your in the military. I would never recommend anyone to work here. Slave labor.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off your numbers. Treat your employee's right. Work faster...faster...faster...
