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

    Pros

    Fast paced. Learn a lot, get insight into the best logistics company on earth.

    Cons

    Look, the only people that are going to be satisfied working at Amazon long term are people that have no children or any kind of a life outside of work. I would recommend working at Amazon for a few years if you are under 30, want to see how a perfect logistics operation works, and need a Fortune 500 company on your resume. But for heaven's sake, do not stay there, unless you really want to work 60 hours a week the rest of your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there is a lot of turnover under any particular manager, you need to ask why, then do something about it. If you get numerous complaints and HR knows about it, why do you keep that person on?

    Former Employee - Cs MANAGER in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get to work with some real smart and focused people that you can learn from. Great opportunity if you work hard. Opportunity to travel if you work hard and are in a role where travel may be needed. Proud to work for such an innovative company.

    Cons

    Too political and management play favourites. If you are "in" with the "in crowd" then you will be looked after. Senior management don't know what is happening in the front line, they think they do but are too far away from what people think. Year over year AIS and/or Pulse survey bring up the same failings but work done to fix issues is never fully implemented, this becomes frustrating and demoralising. Lack of or insufficient training in all roles I was invovled in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to the leads and managers if you are looking to improve the CSA experience, engage them fully throughout processes and any change. Communicate everything better and be more transparent. Do not tolerate favouritism and cliques.
