    Former Employee - Software Engineer In Test in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks, soda, coffee, and tea in the break-room.

    Cons

    Protect management doesn't know what they are doing. A high leave of employee turn-over. No time for professional development or corporate training..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually implement an agile development process. Get input from employees on how to implement new products. Stop managing by schedule and start using metrics for estimating new products.

    Former Employee - Outbound Packer  in  Haslet, TX
    Former Employee - Outbound Packer in Haslet, TX

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

    Pros

    Good pay, enjoyed the exercise, gave senior citizens a chance too work, loved the management in outbound shipping.

    Cons

    Rate standards are absurd, no consideration given to obstacles (wrong box size, dunnage and tape machine constantly going down or being empty, pieces missing or wrong items in tote, add-on time not being recorded from start of problem to problem being solved). Drove nearly 3 hours a day getting back and forth on top of the 10 1/2 hours in the building. Two 15 minute breaks that weren't 15 minutes because it took 5 minutes to walk to and from your station.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jeff Bezos is out of touch reality...greedy self absorbed egomaniac...
