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

    Pros

    Amazon recognizes the contributions of it's employees, and offers tremendous growth opportunities for Top performers. I have been fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing team and strong leaders, enabling me to promote 3 times in four years, and branch out from an Operations Leadership Track to a Business Intelligence Support Track with no issue. I've also come to know several Tier 1 associates who have also grown substantially in their career to become operations leaders.

    I've also been humbled by Amazon's Think Big Program, and how open leadership is to new ideas. I'm proud to have been part of the launch of Prime Now, and to have submitted the idea of Release Night Delivery which leveraged the Prime Now platform to deliver Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and the newest Harry Potter Book, among others.

    Cons

    Be prepared for short deadlines in some cases, as well as high visibility to your performance. There is no expectation to work long hours, but you have to get your job done, or you will be stagnant in your career.

    Amazon's culture is one of self learning. You are expected to seek out information that may not be handed to you on a silver platter. You control your own growth. If you choose not to seek out new opportunities, it's rare for someone to come find you for them.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon's rating system is designed to identify top and bottom performers. Top performers are rewarded, bottom performers are coached and developed, but the middle is often omitted, and not given enough coaching to become a top performer in some cases. Management should look for new ways to develop the steady middle of the road performers. Also, look to promote more from within, vs. hire from the outside. We tend to hold internal candidates to our high hiring bar vs. our internal promotion bar which allows for growth since we know our internal candidate already fits Amazon's culture.

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced workplace, hard work gets rewarded, and recognized. Plenty of work opportunities with VET (Voluntary Extra Time). After you obtain your blue-badge (~3 months of work, apply for it), you get unpaid time off as opposed to attendance points.

    Cons

    Frequent changes to protocols to become more efficient, ends up making people less efficient due to confusion. Hard to remove employees who are inefficient, as a result, creates more work for hard-working employees.

    Advice to Management

    Announce protocol changes at stand-up time to ease confusion among employees. Stop making shift changes that are counter-productive. I.E, if all of the volume needs to go out at 6 either way, why are we creating a 12:15-4:45 shift?

    Pros

    pay increase and benefits. a chance to further your education or get a skilled trade.

    Cons

    some work too hard for not enough money while most do just enough to keep their job. too many feel that they are the boss and dont have to do anything

    Advice to Management

    need better comunication, recognize the hard workers, and stop babying the lazy workers so they can get their way! its a job and most need to read the job description again and study it!!!

    Pros

    There are great benefits working for Amazon.

    Cons

    It’s hard work. Many people start thinking it’s going to be an easy job and quickly realize it’s not. Which is the reason for such a high turn over rate. The pay off is worth the hard work.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t really have any advice for the managers.
