    Think "Investment Banking" or "Management Consulting", boiler room style - not "Retail" or "CPG"

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced, high pressure work environment with loose definition leads to lots of opportunity to define yourself and make a big impact.

    Cons

    Very little focus on developing people or teams. It's kill or be killed. Mid/Upper management doesn't really have a handle on how to manage people in a positive way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better at normalizing culture between teams and find some way to actually develop people instead of just pitting them at each other and against unattainable goals to see who survives.

    Current Employee - Amazon Warehouse Worker in Charleston, TN

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

    Pros

    Good seasonal income--work pace is very fast and time goes by quickly. Work is through Integrity Staffing unless hired as a permanent employee by Amazon. You are allowed time off without pay after working a few weeks with Integrity.

    Cons

    Plan to work hard and switch tasks frequently during shift. It can be frustrating because you are moved around a lot. It seems like the only goal of the company is to complete the work--not a lot of concern for the employees themselves. Plan on a lot of overtime - can be very tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly keep employees at one task for more than half a shift or even a quarter of a shift.
