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.

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

    smart colleagues,a lot of flexibility with working hours and implementing ideas

    bad bosses screw up the system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some bosses are bad bosses and their input should not hinder future hiring. I was a contractor and did a wonderful job launching a pilot program. My boss was in the hotseat with his boss and saw me as a threat- He gave bad feedback about me which has hindered me getting future contract gigs there and I did a wonderful job. The system sucks

    Amazon holds to the classic business model by overworking and underpaying.

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

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity for growth, Personally and Professionally. Stable and Growing company with a lot to offer if you are willing to move with the company.

    Cons

    Managers are too young, immature and inexperienced. Moods swings like children on the playground which ultimately effects the work flow and production. You can be left in a single position forever and no encouragement to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I work at the worst FC in the network and we make our concerns known to make things better.....LISTEN. Please re-evaluate your management selection process and veer from the good 'ol boy module. Associates are "customers" too.
