Exhilarating and on the edge. Crazy schedules and awesome when we meet them.

Pros

Executive focus and engagement in programs is very motivating (and scary for some). No place to hide for under-performers, and super smart and motivated people. Clear accountabilities.

Cons

Work-life can take a hit. Very limited training, and public image of company being a sweat shop is de-motivating. Feels like other companies also do amazing things, but somehow people work less there (not sure how).

    Amazon is a great company with a unique culture that I'm glad I have been able to experience.

    Pros

    Good pay & Good benefits
    Respectful treatment and appreciation of employees that is unique compared to other companies in their industry (and really other companies in general)

    Cons

    At Fulfillment Centers the warehouse work is very physically difficult
    Amazon has high standards for work (rate) that not everyone can meet, even when they are trying

    Advice to Management

    Overall I am very satisfied with the Amazon management, I would suggest that they continue to show lots of appreciation for their employees and continue asking how they can do better.

    Who knew that working toward impossible goals with shoestring budgets could be so rewarding?

    Pros

    Everyone is inventing all the time so there isn't a chance for the job to get dull or mundane.

    I work with amazingly bright and supportive people so there is always someone around to teach me what I don't know.

    Cons

    The constant change makes it difficult to predict how long it will take things to get done and that creates tremendous levels of stress.

    There is never time to take a breath.
