  1. "Worth it for the stocks"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Amazon

      Pros

      High paying, great benefits, fast-paced, developmental culture, great people. Employer is trusted to always do right by employees, have never had a concern of being treated badly or unfairly by management. Tons of growth opportunity as well but must be willing to put in the long hours.

      Cons

      Little to no opportunity for advancement while maintaining a work life balance, subject to night shift in warehouse locations, do not get holidays off.

      Advice to Management

      Enforce a 40-50 hour work week, rested employees will perform better.

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

      Pros

      Weekly pay, good management, good supervisors, mostly good coworkers, 4 hour shifts are nice, fast paced so no downtime, mostly positive environment

      Cons

      Coworkers who don't take responsibility, very boring, expected rates can be unrealistic

      Advice to Management

      Realize that some employees have to make up for the shortcomings of their coworkers, and that can be reflected in scan rates

        Pros

        Fast pace and challenging environment. If you like change it is a great place to be.

        Cons

        Change is constant, so you need to be comfortable with that. It is not a company that values soft skills, so don't expect that type of company culture.
