Former Employee - Ambassador - ISS - Sherlock Researcher in Chester, VA
Former Employee - Ambassador - ISS - Sherlock Researcher in Chester, VA

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The pay is decent that is literally the only plus

Cons

No stability
Constant threats from upper management
They love writing people up
Very, very limited on personal time allowed to take off
Do not accept doctors notes for illnesses
Ruled by favoritism
60 hour weeks even outside of peak
Shifts are awful- there is no family/work balance
HR never does their job and if you have a problem it takes days to fix and multiple tries
known problems with their equipment that causes problems for employees never gets fixed
Favorites are allowed to walk around and do nothing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit acting like you are better than everyone else and actually do your job. Learn how to support your people and actually listen to what they have to say

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Smart people
    Generally good technology

    You will work with very smart and driven people. AWS is a huge market leader and is very useful to startup, small, and medium size companies. Enterprises are the current target and if public cloud takes off could transform Amazon to a top software company.

    Cons

    Work-life balance
    Difficulty in measuring tasks

    The company and each group has an infinite amount of work. The "con" is knowing how to determine what to do and what not to do. Priority 2 items simply don't get done. Getting used to the pace and the triaging of work assignments is critical to success.
