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

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 ManagementAdvice

More smiles. Less numbers.

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    Good money. Easy hiring. Keeps you active. Work independently. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    The strictness of maintaining an ever-increasing stow rate is challenging and a lot of the fulfillment centers show favoritism among management.

    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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