    I have been working at Amazon full-time (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.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (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.

    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.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (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.

    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.
