    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Safety and Work/Home balance is a priority. Benefits are generous even for PT employees from day one which together with starting pay kept me there until I reached FT promotion. Getting time off for family reasons and medical is generally easy to get approved. As long as you demand the best from yourself you are treated great and rewarded for such. Generally, advancements are hired from within so iif you are... driven, then the skies the limit for upward mobility.

    Cons

    You don't need to have lazy days. They are not tolerated so stay home if you can't perform to excellent par which is not so difficult if you have a strong personal work ethic. Generally you have to learn specifics of how to be successful from other experienced employees as there is a very short learning curve and management themselves don't generally take the time to provide the personal individual training you... need at the beginning due to the large number of employees. So don't be afraid to ask for help from your team coworkers. They will help you as you depend on each other.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to have time for more personal training at the very start.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Money and stock if you can last long enough. The associates and PA team work very hard but have no say in management decisions.

    Cons

    Turnover in leadership. New AMs and OMs just change things to get credit for doing something and everything has a metric to score you on. Even if it doesn't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work if you have the right boss and things align well for you. There is no shortage of opportunity to get involved in pretty cool projects and if you like a high pace of change this is a great place to dive in and make a difference.

    Cons

    If you're in operations understand that the operation runs 24/7. Holidays are just like any retail position, i.e. your working. Generally speaking to move up, the company will ask you to relocate, and if you have a family, that may be something to consider.

    Advice to Management

    People, not metrics, drive success.

    Current Employee - Coordinator in Greenville, SC

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to be relocated to many places, Monthly bonus, high sign on bonuses, fast paced environment which builds on leadership.

    Cons

    Small base raise for annual reviews, compensation structure & raises built around inital reserved stock offering, long hours, no holidays off except Christmas and New Years day.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your staff as they are the customers as well. Strong leadership and less politics would make it a lot better place for everyone.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

    Cons

    Operations Environment has high turnover Overworked High Stress Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

    Advice to Management

    Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.

    I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company, great pay, can be a lot of fun, great place to lose weight, outstanding training! Love Jeff Besos!

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, lack of care and empathy for hourly associates by senior leaders at local facility, all about numbers (felt like a slave driver), low regard for former military members at the local level, little to no loyalty to anyone or anything (with the exception of production numbers).

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of General Managers who never show up during off shifts to observe the challenges of night shift personnel. Additionally, senior General Managers must attend and learn ACES.
