    Pros

    It all comes down to the opportunity that Amazon provides. If you show up on time and do your job and complete you tasks and even try to excel you will be awarded in terms of financial benefits as well as the ability to move up in the company!!!

    Cons

    The work opportunity is not for babies...if you are just trying to slide by and do the minimal job tasks then don't work here. This organization is looking for superstars.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the environment for team members to achieve excellence and please listen to the employees suggestions and recommendations that can make the company grow and become a better profitable and fun place to work and have a fruitful career.

    Pros

    salary and benefits are good

    Cons

    a numbers only company...extremely fast paced with tight overseeing ...is definitely not a people oriented company..

    Advice to Management

    do not expect an 80 yr old to run the 100yd dash as fast as a 18yr old....there are positions that will benefit both sides when older workers are given the chance

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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, incredible growth potential. The company is always growing and can’t fill positions fast enough.

    Cons

    They will burn you you out. Unless you’re happy with 50 hour weeks being the normal thing for you, you will eventually start to feel overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    There is a constant erosion of work/life balance the longer someone stays here. But the compensation never feels like it rises at the same rate the responsibilities do. To retain talent, either link pay to responsibilities - not job title, or respect the work/life balance that the current pay justifies.

    Pros

    Team environment, great management, self reliant, competitive pay.

    Cons

    Hard to grow within the company as an Onsite Medical Representative. No direct paths besides a lateral transfer to safety specialist for same pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Providing college assistance to grow your employees within the company can help employees feel more appreciated and give them an avenue to promote. Career choice is only useful for employees seeking employee outside of Amazon.
