It was fun at first, but all the promises they make come at a cost

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

Pros

their Benefits are good, the regular associates are good people, the assistant managers are the hardest working part of the management team.

Cons

Upper management has no clue what goes on on a day to day basis, lunch break is only 30 min., parking is a joke during peak season.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the people in your department, and not just the numbers that are being produced

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many; you can try new things; you'll learn new things about yourself and your limits.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not recognized as legitimate. We're making history which means you can find another job if that's what you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your internal talent evaluation. It's too subjective based mostly on the interview.

    Amazing business model. Under values training, people development, work life balance and goal setting.

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

    Pros

    Tremendously smart, capable well intentioned people.

    Cons

    No emphasis on teamwork, people development or work life balance.
    "You're smart, you figure it out and let us know when you're done"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down from day to day metric management to focus on training your front-line and middle managers on how to develop people and processes
