I worked at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It seemed easy to get the job. The work, while physically demanding, wasn't difficult once I got in shape.

Cons

50 hour weeks were more common than 40s. Certain managers held particularly demeaning attitudes.

Advice to Management

There was a change in management while I was there, and it seemed to be an improvement.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Intelligent counterparts and colleagues. -Great stock and investment opportunities. -Internal and lateral transfers galore!

    Cons

    -Complete lack of anything resembling mentorship. -Leadership only embraces company philosophies when its convenient to the point of hypocrisy. -It's a complete grind every day to perform better than the last.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time and development into your employees!
