    Pros

    Accelerated learning, lots of opportunity for growth, access to a lot of super intelligent peers. Lots of ability to travel

    Cons

    Work life balance, darwinistic, little to no help, you will have virtually no direction. Can be extremely depressing if you don't like the people you are working with due to working so much

    Advice to Management

    Show your managers that you care about them.

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

    Pros

    - Incredibly relaxed environment
    - Management is nice and understanding, helps you whenever you need them to
    - Benefits are excellent
    - Opportunity to move up as time passes
    - Rewarded for things such as productivity and staying safe
    - Bonuses at the end of each month
    - Overtime always available

    Cons

    - If you suffer from any kind of foot, ankle, knee, back, or joint pain, you'll find this job a bit painful after a while
    - It can sometimes get super hot in the facility and there's really no way to cool down a building as large as some of the fulfillment centers

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make sure you're listening to the people who are on the floor day in and day out. We know what needs to change and what's working as we're the ones doing these jobs.

    Pros

    The company gives you some kind of flexibility in your time management. It gives you an acceptable starting pay. It respect s the employees by creating a well acceptable environment, clean, safe and well organized.

    Cons

    Weak point in the lower hierarchical structure.

    Advice to Management

    Redesign now and then the hierarchical structure particularly in the lower level of responsibilities. The lower level is usually the weak level. That level is like an entry level. This is a level where leaders most of the time are driven by their feelings, sensations. Rene Descartes was saying: " do not let your feelings prevailed in your judgments because feelings are dark sensation that can lead into errors. " One example: " It is not because you look ignorant that you are really ignorant" .
