    Pros

    great benefits and fast growing company

    Cons

    lack of management it seems they are afraid to walk down the production line I have seen 2 people in my first 90 days walk down an aisle.

    Advice to Management

    the works leave 5 minutes early and come back 5 minutes late for both break this is 66 hours stolen from company every shift if 200 people did this its 86k in lost money 200is a pipe dream about 90% do this the place could be so productive if management would be on the floor and manage the lines of work

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

    Pros

    I have been at Amazon < 1yr but I can firmly say that the company invests so much in its people from day-one, and everyone at the company is extremely friendly, intelligent and on top of their game. Contrary to other reports that Amazon exhibits a poor work-life balance , so far I have seen a sincere effort to maintain a good work-life balance. Amazonians truly do live and breathe the 14 leadership principles in their day-to-day decisions. Finally, I would say Amazon is a place where you build a career not hold a "job".

    Cons

    The mac laptop that Solutions Architects get is too small, and my windows laptop could be a bit more feature-rich while still being frugal. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep fostering a culture in which the leadership principles are extremely pronounced in day-to-day decisions and in everything that we do - from the smallest to the biggest. Also, keep hiring the best!

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

    Pros

    I work for a new division of Amazon. Amazon has proven to be very flexible and helpful during the launch of our division. Work is fulfilling and benefits are excellent. The work environment is very welcoming and exciting, while remaining professional and work-oriented.

    Cons

    As is normal with a startup department, a lot of ambiguity at first. That has since improved.

    Advice to Management

    Focus just a bit more on employee development. My direct manager does a good job of that, but I've heard that various markets do not have that same attention.

    Pros

    Modern company that expects excellence, and respects employees. Innovators dream company.

    Cons

    Hyper growth companies are hard for some people to feel comfortable ...but the alternative of working for a company struggling to lead their industry is worse.

    Advice to Management

    The operational resources that were added to help grow the company recently makes a difference. Invest in more operational excellence.

    I worked at Amazon (More than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomy, no boss looking over your shoulder, direct deposit twice a week, customer service is highest priority.

    Cons

    Customer service is first priority. Employees (or contractors) are just a means to the end.

    Employees are a dime a dozen. Attitude is “Go ahead and quit.... there are 100 in the hiring pipeline behind you”

    Minimal scheduled hours. Picking up hours to work is like a slot machine.... you keep pulling the handle and every blue moon you bring home some winnings.

    Advice to Management

    There wouldn’t be as many videos online of drivers throwing packages over gates or up on porches if they felt some ownership or had a stake in the game so to speak to instill pride in their work.
