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

    Pros

    I work at AWS in NYC and was hired while in my 2nd trimester. There are great facilities for nursing mothers and they make it easy to pump at the office. There is a real commitment to diversity and inclusion which is felt from the highest levels of management.

    My team has a flexible policy where employees can work from home. You are held accountable for meeting your goals but you have flexibility in deciding how you make that happen.

    Cons

    Don't have any negative comments at this stage.

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

    Pros

    1. This is a new and growing team. So, there is a lot of scope to learn, get leadership experience and progress within Amazon
    2. Fantastic peers
    3. Good work life balance

    Cons

    There can, at times, be some ambiguity in defining the responsibilities of this role since it is a new role within Amazon Advertising. This can be a con for some. Otherwise, it can also be looked at as a great opportunity to show leadership and drive engagements with this role.

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

    Pros

    Base pay plus shift differential for nights and weekends. Fast paced, time goes fast. Easy, robotic work. Can work alone and zone out if you want to. Physically demanding for people who are not in decent shape. Attendance point system provides flexibility in schedule if needed.

    Cons

    Doesn’t appear to be any significant job title/pay raise. Limited parking, when full there’s a lot 3-4 min away walking.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your good workers, there is not much else for them to look forward to here.

    Pros

    Benefits, managers, HR, Hours, growth & opportunities, you get what you put in!

    Cons

    The pay isn't stellar but that's just me, I personally need more, & whining employees saying it's difficult "work" lol, this generation has no idea of what real work is. Amazon is cake! Stop talking to other employees & maybe you'll make rate!!

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate more with fellow managers, get on the same page. Nothing worse than getting conflicting orders from 2 different managers

    Pros

    Extensive thought goes into the Leadership Principles, and they are inseparable from business strategy and execution. Real commitment, not lip service.

    Be prepared. Things move--and get big--fast. It's up to you to focus your energy, and manage your work and life well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop.
