    Tier 1 Indirect

    Pros

    I work in an indirect role, which is a support role without a rate, as compared to someone in "process" who has a rate (like packing or picking). I'm fortunate working here as an indirect that I get to work with a set group of people everyday and they really feel like my coworkers. When you're working in "process" it's a gamble who you will be working next to and if you know their name. I feel like the pay is decent for the work you're doing. The health coverage is very good. I enjoy my job minus the feeling that I'm doing a lot of work sometimes.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is terrible. I'm always exhausted after work and have no energy to do anything on my weekends because of it. It's worse when there's mandatory overtime. In process there is a lot of stress because of rates, and in indirect (roles without a rate) there's stress because it feels like you're doing the work of more than one person. Management will pull people from indirect to go into process because it looks good for them and we move more units, but puts stress on the other indirects to make up the work. I also feel like I never see my manager, which is something important to me for some reason.

    You Get What You Put In

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.
