    Pros

    Growth as a leader while gaining a lot of skills such as multitasking, situational decision making earning trust among your peers.

    Cons

    Stressful at times and open on all holidays on closed 2 days a year so i am sure it becomes a larger burden on family life the further up you move same as any other job

    Associates before numbers. Increase your morale and the numbers will follow.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazon has provided me with a wonderful opportunity to grow and develop. I have never been apart of a team that truly promoted each others growth as much as I have here. Ideas are taken seriously, ambitions are heard, and goals are in reach.

    Cons

    Self reflection is important in development, and this is not an environment that will reward you for meeting expectations. If you can rise to the occasion to exceed expectations you will be successful, but you must be a driven personality type.

    Advice to Management

    I am lucky to have a SOLID management team as far up as I can see, but I have witnessed other teams that are not as lucky. Managers, truly believe your team, and seek to understand their challenges so you can speak to them rather than make excuses for them.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    its a steady check - good health insurance, stock options, just about any schedule you could desire to work.

    Cons

    Every day is day one! From the first day you walk in you become a pawn. If you like being in one place long this not the job for you. They treat you like a number and define you as a YOYO. Flexibility is must. The word favor is used like I love you and has a double meaning its all one sided. Weak minds and strong backs are all they want.

    Advice to Management

    For them to remember we are human too and not just a number to generate other numbers. We have bad days too.

  8. "Challenging, Exiciting, and rewarding, but strenuous and high pressure."

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

    Pros

    the benefits are good, their schooling payment program covers 95 percent and easy to navigate, all the work is straight forward and easy to understand and do.

    Cons

    long hours, huge company and it's easy to be just another number in the sea of employees, rate driven and little forgiveness if you can not keep up

    Advice to Management

    just a bit of recognition and general respect to an individual goes a long way. fallowing through with request and giving everyone the oppertunity to learn new positions goes a long way to keeping people.
