    Pros

    Cutting edge to work with. Less red tape and ownership to the level where you are deemed as product owner which makes day to day easy.

    Cons

    too many things to deal with it and sometimes easy thing takes long time but I personally enjoy the process as I get to know lot of things along the way

    Pros

    You will work with some of the smartest and hard working Leaders in your career who care deeply and are passionate about the work they do. The stock is also a phenomenal bonus.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life harmony for anyone that is not a warehouse employee. There is a culture of worshiping the non-exempt employees, while there is no engagement or value for the exempt leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your internals more, especially those that have been there before the stock sky-rocketed - they are the ones that are committed to your company.

    Pros

    Very fast paced environment so you always have something to do.
    They also offer overtime a decent amount of the time.

    Cons

    Not a lot of flexibility in shifts. I would've like to work like Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, but that wasn't one of their preset options so couldn't do it.

    Pros

    Great people, somewhat cool product

    Cons

    Experience varies (a lot) from team to team, manager to manager. Company provides some career growth coaching, but you take your own wheel completely. e.g. change team and product group that works best for you. Swim or sink culture.

    Pros

    One of the most innovative companies on earth! This is an exciting place to work, always something new and challenging. The pay is highly competitive, the talent I work with on a daily basis is astounding, and the culture is outstanding. Very customer focused!

    Cons

    There are not alot of "pay grades" at Amazon, so this isn't the place for people who are looking to get promoted every year. Titles here tend to be modest in comparison to the level of responsibility. But the amount of opportunity, and the pay within each pay grade, more than makes up for that gap.

    I have been working at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid hours for part timers, good exercise, good environment and interactions with others. You'll develop new skills while on the job and learn many new things.
    Great for students and set schedules as a part time.

    Cons

    Have 1 hour prepared before and after your shifts during holidays. You need to have a flexible schedule of at least 4 days in a row. You need to adapt as soon as you can. Some managers can be harsh and has lack of understanding. You need to voice out your concerns and complaints if you want anything to change. This is not a place for shy people.

    Advice to Management

    The workers are also humans not slaves.
