Pros

Worked in fulfillment center. Good pay and benefits for full timers. Fun job with equally fun coworkers from all walks of life.

Cons

They work you like human robots. Constant pressure to keep up your numbers. Numbers seem unattainable to all but a very few.

Advice to Management

More smiles. Less numbers.

    OK experience at Amazon... very unstructured and political environment.

    Pros

    Cool to be part of a growing and young company

    Cons

    Management environment is very difficult. Not a pleasant experience. Experienced managers have very dictatorial style that sucks creativity and fun out of the work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the people that you hire.

    Pros

    From outsider's perspective Amazon seems to be an innovative company focusingon improving customer experience and offering more affordable products.

    Cons

    1) unrealistic business targets
    2) inexperienced middle management
    3) no support to remove roadblocks and, as a result, no work life balance
    4) sometimes no respect in communication
    5) relatively uncompetitive salary, the stock compensation is a joke given 3-4 year vesting period and 1 year employee retention

    Advice to Management

    in 2-3 years it will be challenging to attract talent, if such a trend continues.
