    I worked at Amazon (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most operations are still being establish within the Amazon corporation and as a result numerous points of view are actively being considered.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, leadership, and development. Employee retention is very poor resulting in the lack of experienced peer interactions.

    Advice to Management

    Everything that is proven and established is not necessarily bad, innovation for innovation's sake is not always a good thing.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary with stock options is good. But, the stock vests over several years.

    Cons

    Extremely metric driven; high turnover, even in management.

    As manager of support department, must be on-call 24/7. Expect to work 60+ hours/week if you want to meet all metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Give more resources to support teams. Two people in a department for a 1M+ square ft facility that operates 24/7 does not suffice.
