    Great benefits, flexible schedule, weekly to bi weekly pay.

    Turn over company hard to move up. Most people don't last long.

    Better communication can benefit to process of the warehouse. Don't pick and choose what's more important I think all aspects are equally important you just need to find a way to balance it all so nothing gets missed.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, cutting edge (in some areas), creating trends-not following them, lots of responsibility very fast if you can manage the timelines and pressure

    Cons

    Relentless pace, project teams are purposely built to minimize dependencies and cost of coordination. Results in a lot of duplication of effort

    Advice to Management

    Continue to obsess over customers to set benchmark in expectations, but build in the capability to meet them.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and events that are carried out at various throughout the country. I love that Amazon is currently the best brand in America at the moment. The stock value is definitely a plus.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager and site the work can be very brutal! The better your manager and support staff the easier and more feasible your workload will be.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your people and give them the autonomy to run their own departments. Micromanaging is an area of opportunity. Don't let weak managers do whatever they want. That's terrible. Nepotism can be an issue in the FCs.

    Pros

    Being able to go with the flow of working different places in the warehouse takes you out of comfort zone. Management is great

    Cons

    people standing around while others are working with a purpose and management doesn't seem to mind. Management not always as honest when it comes to what's going on with the shift, amount of work...

    Advice to Management

    Have conversation with employees and act on the advice given. Communication on a daily with employees good ,bad or indifferent . More incentives for hard working employees
