    Pros

    If you work as a picker or stower, this job can give you a great workout. The people are mostly very friendly and approachable and it is customary to engage in a little chit-chat in order to maintain sanity. Full-time permanent employees get lots of chances to take time off including paid time and the dress code is very liberal.

    Cons

    While some days can be worse than others, the work is generally extremely monotonous. Burnout is inevitable. The atmosphere on the floor and get lonely and at times depressing as it seems that no one really wants to be here. The rules tend to be hypocritical (you can actually be stopped for moving too fast) and only emphasize how dumb and devoid of intellect this job is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your employees like robots. Music should be played more often to ease the monotony.

    Pros

    Interesting projects; lost of technical challenges;

    Cons

    Super frugal; can be mean; working space is small; you will need air to breath; PCs, keyboards, monitors, mices are low-quality and cheap things; You have only 1 monitor for working only. Even coffee cups don't have lids or insulators. Managers ask you about your progress on projects all over the time.
    High bar-raiser, difficult promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    words to reduce frugality. care more about personal and family lives.
