    Pros

    Freedom to innovate and question the status quo. You are not punished for making mistakes.

    Cons

    You need to manage your own workload- your manager will probably never take things off your plate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let growth lower the bar. I can't say with confidence that the bar has been raised in the last five years.

    Pros

    The compensation is good, the working environment is excellent, and you are surrounded by motivated, intelligent people.

    Cons

    The commute can be a pain if you don't like in SLU. Long hours and extreme productivity are always expected but there is nothing wrong with that and part of the reason the company is so successful.

    Advice to Management

    There are dogs all over the campus. How about kids? On site day care would be a huge benefit to your employees.

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

    Pros

    - A lot of flexibility - No micor management. If you like your work, you have a lot of scope to innovate
    - People are awesome! No matter how good you are in Amazon - you will always find plenty of people who are better than you

    Cons

    - A company driven by development family
    - Day to day activities are relatively slow as compared to consulting - More long term thinking and innovation driven

    Advice to Management

    Manager skills are more people driven than tech driven. Second, too many job families have been created - fewer would have reduced the attitude of "thats not my job"

    Pros

    Schnelllebig. Vieles lernen, einen Einblick in die beste Logistikfirma der Welt erhalten.

    Cons

    Mal ehrlich, die einzigen Leute, die mit langfristiger Arbeit bei Amazon zufrieden sein werden, sind Leute ohne Kinder und jegliches außerberufliche Leben. Ich würde empfehlen, ein paar Jahre bei Amazon zu arbeiten, wenn du unter 30 bist, sehen willst, wie ein perfekter Logistikbetrieb funktioniert, und ein Fortune500-Unternehmen auf dem Lebenslauf brauchst. Aber um Gottes Willen, bleib nicht da, außer wenn du wirklich 60 Stunden pro Woche für den Rest deines Lebens arbeiten willst.

    Advice to Management

    Wenn es viel Mitarbeiterfluktuation unter irgendeinem bestimmten Manager gibt, muss man fragen, warum, und dann muss man etwas dafür tun. Wenn Sie zahlreiche Beschwerden bekommen und die Personalabteilung davon weiß, warum halten Sie die Person überhaupt?
