I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best Pay, Great leadership principles and there are several departments that are doing great. I wish they let people learn and grow as they boast about "hire and develop" the best talent

    Cons

    Narrow minded executive team. HR has absolutely no culture and can talk any crap. There is no scope for growth for the externally hired candidates. They don't respect experience. A 5 yr experienced Amazonian would be a manager and 25 yrs experiened new hire will report him irrespective of talent. THERE IS CULTURE

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the roles and their responsiblities. If you got no clarity on what you need, please take advice from Jeff and don't make Amazon a worst place to work.
