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

    Pros

    The insurance is great. PTO and Vacation time is good.

    Cons

    The rate for associates is very high. They give written action even when you make 90 percent rate. It is crazy. They keep raising the rate also. When you have a written action you cannot change jobs either. There is not any opportunity for advancement unless you have a degree. I am very disappointed with Amazon.

    Advice to Management

    Stop raising the rates. Make the the rates for large items lower than for small. We continue to bring this up in the All Hands meetings and it is not addressed as it should be. The equipment needs to be repaired on pick carts. This is a billion dollar company and the equipment is in disrepair.
