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

    Pros

    Time off, benefits, stock, work from home!

    Cons

    Slow advancement, political, and inconsistent expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the people who are consistently producing rather than promoting and developing the people who spend the most time telling you how awesome they are without the production metrics to prove it.


  2. "Great for initial experience"

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, ability to work from home, many different OUs to work in

    Cons

    lack of promotion opportunities (they encourage more lateral moves), upper management asks for input but never uses the data collected, lack of commitment to developing its people

    Advice to Management

    Develop the people you have, promote the hard workers, and LISTEN to your managers when they submit ideas that have data to back it up.
