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

    Pros

    Look after people / Allow flexibility for life balance / Internal career opportunities / Good compensation / Very qualified people / Good environment to work / Merit system

    Cons

    Very large organisation which can be overwhelming and make you feel like a number. Difficult to understand organization set up and lead to duplications/overlaps

    Current Employee - Brand Specialist in London, England

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The company has all its priorities in the right place, focusing on customer. Helps you feel you are part of something great and plenty of opportunity to do what you want

    Cons

    If you get stuck with the wrong manager/team you can be stuck in a role going nowhere with a manager that doesnt help you out of the situation. The company benefits are not as good as they originally sound (i.e. shares come with a 55% tax bill etc)

    Pros

    Every aspect of working here is driven towards long term benefits, whilst still maintaining customer obsession

    It's a conglomerate of a million startup organisations - resource constraints can creep into every job role

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazon has some intelligent people working. The pay is great and the benefits are also wonderful.

    Cons

    The review process ranks employees against each other and is not based on your performance but based on the fact of, does your manager like you. A lot of young managers that do not know how to be managers and will ruin a person's reputation and career to make themselves look good. You can be a hard worker however the rewards go to those who can manipulate the data and backstab their colleagues. Any conversation you...

    Advice to Management

    You need to stop putting young kids into management roles without proper training. Your OLR process does not make sure you have the best of the best employees but it fosters a good old boy club filled with racism and favoritism. The customer service you give your customers you should give the employees.

    Current Employee - Marketing Specialist in London, England

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Freebies, fun corporate events, inspiring company-wide All Hands presentations, really great colleagues, shares, good reputation.

    Cons

    Pretty much every single employee is overworked and constantly exhausted. Your manager will never care how overstretched you are.

    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    Flexible. Decent pay, no one to tell you what or when to do something. You’re your own boss. If you finish delivering all parcels early you go home and get paid in full

    Cons

    Not so many shifts and no proper department to help when not at work. You also cannot choose more than one location to deliver in or deliver in your local area
