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

Pros

decent pay, nice location, can be fun place to work depending on the team/boss.

Cons

mandatory weekend, night work if needed, super fast pace, no training whatsoever.

Advice to Management

High turnover is just as costly. You cannot work people to death without recognition or reward.

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

    Pros

    “Amazon is a great company with an elite operations arm.”

    Cons

    Shift life can be rough for individuals with families. You have little say in which shift you will be working and I have found a lack of a succession planning for the more desirable shifts.

    Advice to Management

    More career development for junior managers.
