    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Great co-workers with amazing backgrounds - Ability to move functions/countries/industries with in the company - competitive pay - fast paced environment - visionary leadership (most of the times)

    Cons

    - difficult to get promotion - not much of pay hike for loyal employees, people joining fresh out of school with same degree are earning higher than people in the company for a long term

    Advice to Management

    - give every one face time in your team - share what your thought process behind any big or small decisions that gives an opportunity to young minds to learn from you

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, stock options once you've been there for at least a year, if you like a fast paced environment where you're always on your feet, this job is for you!

    Cons

    Though the job is fast paced, sometimes the time allowed to pick a item can be unreasonable, especially when it's on the opposite side of the floor you're on. It encourages people to basically run to their next pick so they stay within times, which can be a safety concern.

    I worked at Amazon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a fun fast paced environment, always learning something different.

    Cons

    Not being able to stay extra hours, especially when the Director takes notice when your coming up on 38 hours for that week and your a part timer. At least the Director is doing his/her job.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of communication among management, they don't know the hours that each worker places in even though I volunteered many times over to stay late because I was asked to and a lot of other workers decided not to stay many times.
