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

    Pros

    Some of the best minds you will meet work here... It is very face paced and demanding. The pay is good and job can often feel rewarding

    Cons

    Sometimes too face paced where it becomes unorganized. NO work life balance. Prepare to work long hours, extra days and work from home with no sympathy given and family life out of order. Because of this it is a higher than normal attrition rate at all Fulfillment centers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a better balance. The attrition rate is horrible and needs to be addressed

    Pros

    Learn a lot fast. You have to go the extra mile in every project and that helps you see and learn new aspects of a project every day.

    Cons

    Management is very political and at times blindsided to employees that have good judgement. Moving up in the ladder is not that easy, and at times it could be impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote and celebrate everyone equally, not just your favorites.
