    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.

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

    Pros

    insurance, free legal advice, other benefits, time off, stock,

    Cons

    constant scheduling, policy,and management changes

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the schedule the same; constant changes cause sleep disorders and mental health issues. The changes also affect your life in general. My department has the worst schedule and has been changes three times in a year. We will go in when it's light and come home when it's light now that spring is here. We work from 8 pm- 6:30 am. No one else in the building has a schedule like ours! It is not a workable schedule....it is also Monday- Thursday so you have no time to do anything during the week. You pretty much sleep away your week. So when you're told you have a three-day weekend, think about how much of each day one actually has when you make these ridiculous hours. Also, you don't just change our hours, you also have changed the days we work!

    Cons

    its hard to move up in the company if you don't fill out a lot of applications and tedious things that require time.
    MANDATORY OVERTIME IS ALWAYS A POSSIBILITY, I have had years were i work 4-6 months of 50 hour weeks against my will.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of mandatory overtime, spend more time with individuals and try to grow their careers. Spend time in job roles more often to experience what individuals go through on a daily basis and expose yourself to the barriers they encounter.
