    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were okay, not great but could've been worse.

    Cons

    Long hours (12+). Mandatory OT during holidays (this could also be a Pro for some). Every minute you're on the clock, they are keeping track of your status. No life outside work. Ask a question from those who are supposed to know and you will never get the same answer. Seems like no one really knows the correct answer, or even an answer sometimes, to questions.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to give any because they wouldn't listen.
