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

Pros

You can bring your dog to work.

Cons

No one cares about you, it is all about the task at hand. Limited long term future shared.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you truly believe in your leadership principles, understand the laws of diminishing returns of your "human capital"

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Shepherdsville, KY

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

    Pros

    Benefits: Health insurance, 401K, stock options
    My Time
    Meeting new and different people

    Cons

    in picking: pick paths were iffy...rates were always harped on weekly!
    breaks were short (i.e. a 15 minute break was really a 10 min. break)
    too much favoritism
    if you hit above/beyond rate or are trying to move up w/o kissing up, its hard to get recognized.

    Great place to work, unless you are a woman.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in a short amount of time. Amazon offers a school accommodation which allows you to drop below full time to complete your degree.

    Cons

    Women are treated poorly. An assertive woman gets constant criticism of being "too confrontational". An unassertive woman gets nothing. Meetings start and end with fantasy football, a topic in which I find it difficult to feign interest. Work assignments appear to mirror the progress of fantasy football. There is no work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am dissatisfied because of the disparate treatment. I will not even wait until the ink is dry on my Bachelor's before I am out of there! If you want to hire and retain women, send your male manager's to training to learn how to treat us.
