I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The stock is not bad, I guess. And you can say, I'm working at Amazon.

It's more like a business company compared to other giants like Google or Facebook.

    Amazon's VCC- Virtual Call Center

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    No commute-
    Save money on gas and parking
    Work in your pajamas.
    Great employee benefits: 401k, shares of stock, medical/dental, PTO, vacation time
    Quarterly bonus for metrics

    Cons

    Communication methods with upper Management can be challenging and timely.
    Ineffective time clock & time off system, many glitches that can negatively impact the amount of time off you have available.
    Training could be more thorough, many customer situations failed to support a known solution.
    Lame discount
    You're pretty much disposable, rather than take the time to investigate a concern, they'll terminate employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Amazon is a very innovative and progressive company. Amazon values employees who are motivated and exceed expectations. There is a large potential for promotion, Amazon is growing at an incredible rate

    Cons

    Very competitive environment. Not a company for someone who wants to come to work do the minimum and go home. Some good employees get looked over for advancement because they don't have a four year degree

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give every one a chance to prove their worth. change the review process!!
