    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits beginning on day one, ten hour work day, three days off per week.

    Cons

    Once the general manger transferred to another location, all the rats came out to play. If you make your way through life by brown nosing and butt kissing, this place is heaven for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. People who actually do the work can totally clue you in to what's really going on. Coming from outside the company may not be your fault, but it doesn't have to be a barrier either. Listen and respond.

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

    Pros

    I've been at Amazon Web Services for just over a month now, and I am already certain that this has been my best career move to date. Everyone that I have worked with or spoken to so far is brilliant, wants to succeed personally, as a team, and as a company. The Leadership Principles really are a big part of everyday life & conversation at Amazon, and everything stems from customer obsession. Decisions are data driven, and the writing culture is legit.

    Amazon is the dream for self-starters that want to keep growing.

    Cons

    - You will be "drinking from the fire hose" for a while, as there is so much to learn about the culture, processes & procedures, et cetera, so if you do not have a voracious appetite for learning new things, Amazon isn't for you.
    - Also, job descriptions at AWS can change rapidly as new products & services are being developed all of the time, existing products & services are constantly being iterated upon, and new opportunities are popping up. If you prefer to do the same thing day in & day out, Amazon isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Never compromise on the bar.

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

    Pros

    Hired me on the spot, when I truly needed a job.

    Cons

    Work can be very grueling and management is male dominated and can be very ego centric.

    Advice to Management

    Your management team should be as diverse as your employee pool. When I work at a place and see that the employees are extremely diverse and industrious but the management looks like the definition of patriarchy I’m extremely put off.

    Pros

    No interview easy to get in

    Cons

    Expected to work non-stop, demeaning job for women and men, you're just a number, no steady position; when you are used to a job they move you over and over

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart and be more understanding.
