    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, paid time off, always work so no worries about being short on hours, paid holidays, and you get a small employee discount

    Cons

    Work most holidays, pay is lacking, crazy work schedule during the peak season (nov-Jan), HR is clueless and couldn't careless about your issues

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, most of them know the job better then you do.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have pretty good benefits. Bonuses exist, though they are usually very small. The pay is comparable to similar jobs.

    Cons

    The work can be extremely hard on your body, depending on what department you work in. At the time I left, they had not given us a raise in several years.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is important and effects productivity! Keep things fun and appreciate your employees!

    Pros

    Medical insurance is great

    Cons

    They don't want you talking at all. They watch you like your in prison.

    Advice to Management

    Back off. You might get more work out of people if you're not constantly breathing down their necks.

    The money is good for the extremely easy work you're doing

    Cons

    Standing constantly on your feet for 10 hours in one spot

    Advice to Management

    Play music again. The work gets very boring and monotonous, it would be nice to have something in the background while you work

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

    Pros

    many hours/overtime 60 hours a week

    Cons

    can be a very demanding job-
    seem under valued as an employee
    pay could be greater for job work expectedof you
    morale is bad
    false hopes

    Advice to Management

    increase wage
    make management more available for new hires
    too many chiefs
    no one seems to know whats going on
    have to relocate out of state to get the good job advancement
    passive/aggressive-new hires get large bonus and decent pay(15 hr. $600 bonus for doing same work-we all should retain that rate
