    I worked at Amazon for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay rate was decent Work was easy enough People were generally pleasant and easy going.

    Cons

    -The initial hiring process is very misleading and promises a number of things that are not remotely in the realm of reality.( ie. Seasonal work leading to full-time/permanent positions, Sick leave, paid time off) -Mostly part-time employee's at the location I worked at, all working 30hrs max but mostly 24hrs or less. -Training is minimal at best. -Lots of worker bee's but very few actual managers, I never actually...

    Cons

    The only I thing that I see that some people might notice , is when they are new, is the size of the staff , especially at Peak Season. Me personality, I thrive there.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    * The compensation is very good. * It doesn't lack in opportunities. People use this to move around a ton. * The company has great job stability because it's been growing for so many years.

    Cons

    * It's hard to keep the work life balance in check. * Engineers are asked to work insane amounts of hours. * Aggressive management tactics to manage individuals out of the company. * Low movement in upper management because they don't get managed out even when they are poor performers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus heavily on keeping your work life balance in check or Amazon will steel every waking minute you have.
