    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible seating, fun co-workers on various teams, open seating, which allows you to chat with recruiters in different business lanes, great rooftop patio and places to relax

    Cons

    Not enough quiet space to work

    Advice to Management

    Have more rooms, with screens, that are quite. Or potentially a section of a floor.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is okay (company goal to be in 51 percentile for pay) Quality Company Room for learning if you can handle everything else

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. Stop demanding your employees work 40-60hrs when it meets your needs. Health insurance is just okay but many jobs are very physically demanding. You don't feel like a human at the company, just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    lots of flexibility on how you do your work and autonomy

    Cons

    if you want to fulfill all your job requirements be prepared to work 55 hours a week. management tends to use this role as a dumping ground for busy work. there are few to no goal posts in the job to know where you are at.
