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

Pros

Believes in celebrating success of others and recognizing those who have succeeded to different level within the company

Cons

Among some of the Area Manager there is huge amounts of favoritism. This company also base your performance on numbers. Looking at someone is a good form of constructive feedback, however this kills morale among associates and push many to find of places for employer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More communication on pending change in the company that will or could effect associates directly. Find a more constructive avenue for increasing morale among associates, because performance rates are producing high turnover which sends a negative message to prospective associates and the community.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not in a huge city
    Interesting work
    Chance to make an impact

    Cons

    Senior management and district/corporate management treat everyone at FCs like dirt. It's like the real amazon is in Seattle and the FCs are dirty skeletons in the closet that the "real" amazonians hate. The way salaried managers have to deal with hourly employees kind of ruins the whole thing.
