    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, stocks(sorry, no more stocks for new hires), benefits.

    Cons

    Culture can be better. If you’re liked, you’re “in there”. If you’re hated, you’re better off quitting before they find a reason to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t put numbers above the well-being of your associates.

    For part time excellent pay, great hours

    No organization, no real direction, need to train associates in professionalism, need a dress code, workers threwing boxes, burn out extremely easy

    Advice to Management

    Learn to forecast correcting, learn to correct people when pallets not built correctly, not wrapped correctly, too many accidents

    None other than if you're not willing to learn the content and work hard and fun then this company isn't for you.

    Management has been great to me, each and every point of contact.

    Pros

    The job itself, no matter where you're stationed is pretty straight forward and easy.
    The culture is diverse and interesting. You work with different people often and management is supportive. Fun atmosphere. There are some really great benefits.

    Cons

    The physicality of the work can be pretty brutal, particularly for those with arthritis or other bone and joint issues. Working on hard concrete for up to 10 hours a day is hard on the body. Pay attention to how you schedule your shifts, because it's on you if you can't keep up. Breaks are wasted of time due to building setup.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a solution to the 'jiffy' issue and the 'break time' issue. If you didn't come up through fulfillment to get your job at Amazon, take the time to shadow a few associates in each position to understand what we do and where are frustration points are better.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think on any.

    Cons

    Your body will wear down from walking several miles a day on concrete floors while trying to meet the company's required minimum standards for number of packages scanned and sorted.
    If you're a hard worker, you'll be asked to pick up the pace for the slower workers. You will wear down faster.
    High turn-over job. The company constantly changes your work days and hours depending on their need.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as humans, not organic robots. Rotate jobs during the shifts so people with more demanding jobs don't wear down. Care for people, not only your delivery station's numbers.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is okay. Could be better for job duties where you are required to act about your role without compensation. It’s more for experience.

    Cons

    Communication could be better across management team. More training should be provided to employees so everyone is on the same page. Also associate feedback should be taken more seriously by management

    Pros

    Amazon is filled with smart, humble people who live out the company's leadership principles,. It is a culture of innovation who puts the customer first. Working for a world-class brand is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Commitment to innovation and "micro-architectures" in the organization can lead to fragmentation or duplicated/competitive efforts. That said, the speed at which decisions can be made and ideas implemented is more important.
