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

    Pros

    Obtaining leadership experience. Operations offers you a chance to lead a large group of people right out of MBA. Good oportunities to get into after finishing the program.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure both from hourly employees and senior management. Looong hours, especially in peak season. Absence of peers you can learn from (in operations). Minimal focus on development.

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

    Pros

    Consistent growth, Safe, and Decent Wage

    Cons

    Annual Reviews not based on measurable goals, it lends itself to whether you've stroked egos accordingly, Work-Life balance incredibly off kilter, and high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Your turnover rate is because you have a crappy environment.
