I worked at Amazon.com

Pros

Amazon.com is a great place to work due to its rapid growth. There are many opportunities due to the opening of new facilities nationwide.

Cons

Amazon.com involves a lot of extra hours with no overtime pay. The salary could also be improved for the amount of work that is put in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management at Amazon is great since it allows employees to implement ideas without much resistance. The communication between various managers needs to stay at a high level.

    Pros

    Pay is a bit higher than average. I am a temp so I cannot comment on much else

    Cons

    ~Horrible management.
    ~Management is expected to dedicate their life to Amazon or they are not considered a team player.
    ~They don't want anything but performance.
    ~They want your ideas and to use and abuse you and give you nothing in return
    ~Don't expect to get hired here if you start as a temp. They will give you every excuse in the book!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your people. You have very smart and talented folks working for you so stop thinking that they are only there for you to dump on. Make them partners in the teams success!
