    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It pays decently well, the conditions aren't bad and safety is much better than most warehouses.

    Cons

    Management can send conflicting messages at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a true set of values and set up all your policies around them. Treat all employees fair, including at the supervisor level and apply every policy the same way every time and the morale would get a lot better.

    Current Employee - Technical Account Manager in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Technical Account Manager in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company does all the right things for employees. Mediocre salary, but the equity shares make it worth while. Can't say enough about all the perks, such as Zip car, dogs at work, fun culture.

    Cons

    Amazon owns you 24/7/365. That is the way it is, and I found little apology for it. The interviews are brutal, but you are glad that they take time to build a company of owners who care enough to drive the right projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazon's philosophy is, and has always been: Your career path is your problem. I'd have liked a manager who might have took time to help more with the big picture to help me plan my advancement better.
