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

Pros

Company name, casual though fast paced atmosphere, nice people. Having Amazon on your resume certainly is a plus, when you go looking for other work. And it is building for FCs across the country so opportunities to move up in the company come often.

Cons

Going through security, low pay, departments don't always work well together.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make hand-offs between day and nights more complete. Inbound and Outbound need to work better together.

    Pros

    Fun and challenging problems every day.
    I get to work alongside and learn from some of the smartest people I know.
    There are so many ways to have a big impact on millions of people.
    A chance to participate in history.

    Cons

    Its really challenging to keep a good work life balance here, and that seems to be by design.
    It's a bit of a chaotic environment and isn't always the easiest place to get things done.
