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

    Pros

    Most of our employees do not really work that hard - there are moments when it gets hectic, but for the most part they stand around a lot waiting for the next thing to do, so whomever wrote the horrible review below must have been let go for some disciplinary problem. Everyone here seems to be very happy and with the perks they get beyond paycheck, everyone seems happy.

    Cons

    The lazy people get upset when they have to do something so I do wish they would leave. At start-up there was a lot of confusion, yes, but now things have settled down and it's a typical routine. The ones complaining just want to get paid for doing nothing. Good place to work, despite what the one person said.

    Advice to Management

    We need to be more organized on launches, the confusion had everyone stressed for a couple weeks, but much better now.

    Pros

    - gift cards
    - great co-workers

    Cons

    Lack of communication seems to be the epitome of Amazon. Being a customer they're great but they forget that their employees are also their customers. I will never work for this company again and would not recommend to anyone, not even my dog. The amount of work they require from you is not worth the amount they pay. They expect you to answer every single email, every single call and bend over backwards for nothing. Amazon sucks when you're an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so complacent and give the CSA's a break. You're so customer obsessed that you tend to forget about the people working for you.
