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

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. Forget the paycheck, if you have full time availability the benefits alone are worth it.

    Cons

    Sometimes you work hard just to get paid as much as someone who slacks off and never gets caught.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key. Employees become complacent when they think their impact isn't valued.

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

    Pros

    Education of transportation and logistics if allowed to advance.

    Cons

    No career advancement without college degree and extreme homophobia which is treated with a blind eye.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and see what is really going on here and treat people the way you would like to be treated or your family would be.
    You keep people where you want them with no advancement opurtunities.

    Pros

    Absolute ownership by everyone, regardless of position. Management has some of the smartest people employed I've ever met. If you are a hard worker, expect to earn more and more while getting promoted.

    Cons

    You will work long...something I never prided myself on doing. Smart - yes. Hard - yes. But there is an expectation as a manager to work 50 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    Good pay
    If identifying data trends is your talent then this is your place to be.
    Everyday is ‘Day one’ can be good or cumbersome it depends
    Your input as a employee is valuable
    Work life balance

    Amazon has been that company I have admired the FC ‘make it happen’ teams.
    And I am apart of a company with great people.
    I love it here! Amazon truly invest and value their employees and it does matter if you’re super smart (which there’s a lot of them here, lol) or just a consistent hard worker.
    As a Amazonian your input is valued!
    Because it’s the coolest company on the planet! Keep up the good work Amazonians and let’s keep pushing the bar of excellence! #makinghistorywhilehavingfun!

    Cons

    Day one the cumbersome side. Workload constantly changing. So be prepared to work hard and efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Work on bridging the communication gap and provide concrete metrics on teams overall performance (this is easier said than done) but it’s important for team members to identify what is required.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Lots of employee engagement. Lunches, activities, ways to provide positive feedback.
    Regular review cycle and pay increases.
    Lots of opportunities to transfer teams.

    Cons

    It's hard to figure out where certain issues belong. People come to you for help, but it isn't something you do, and you have no idea where to tell them to go.
    Lots of ambiguity in job scope. Documentation gets outdated quickly.
    It seems to be difficult to promote from L4 Hourly to L4 Salary.
    Every year there is a re-organization that changes which teams report where. It causes some confusion about what direction the cart is being pulled. A re-org caused a hiring freeze, when the positions were still very much needed.
