    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Good exposure to various technologies

    Cons

    Work/life balance. Constantly under pressure, panic and chaos. Most projects reach fire-fighting mode. Managers dont respect employees personal time and expect them to work on weekends most of the time. Eventhough, you work hard you will be screwed big time. Too much bureaucracy and politics to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent and be better managers. Respect your employees and their personal time.

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

    Pros

    I can't think of any. This company was probably the worst I have ever worked at. Sickness and misery were everywhere.

    Cons

    Micro-managing culture, distrust of employees, employ people with permanent contracts but each week empty seats. We're told they're sick. So many people??? More like sacked, Expect you to work like an animal, open culture of bullying, minorities, gays etc. won't fit in be alienated and not mixed with.. yet managers and bosses book themselves meetings and regular time off. This company will demand overtime and extra hours with no extra breaks almost every day. Every week there are new people. Ridiculously high staff turnover. Hell on earth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you hire new people, give them a chance and if dodgy or unacceptable working practices, training etc are brought to your attention have the courage to tackle it head on rather than intimidate and bully the people who dare flag it up. respect everyone and create a happy chilled environment it'll benefit you better in the long run
