Former Employee - Copywriter in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

Cons

After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.

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

    Pros

    Hourly employees are offered plenty of overtime. Unless you intentionally make an effort to either miss work or be confrontational; you really have amazing job security. Interactions with other employees are fun. Competition and performance are encouraged.

    Cons

    Workflow is impeded by mismanagement and metric analysis by inexperienced analyzers. Negative reinforcement can be more common than positive. The hours that they expect everyone to work lead to a lot of experienced workers getting burnt-out and disenfranchised with the philosophy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push for greatness, but be prepared to recognize that greatness. Weed out the negative attitude by showing upward mobility to hourly employees.
