I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great pay, benefits, name brand company. Never a dull moment. Some of the people are really cool to work with. Truly focused on customer experience.

Cons

No work-life balance. People move between departments so often they never master anything. People enter new departments without basic skills. Senior management too concerned with taking credit for subordinates' work. Little respect for each other in the management ranks. Most times we just fought to protect our kingdoms.

Advice to Management

Learn to respect others. Actually listen in conversations.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed, casual environment where I feel valued and I feel like my opinion matters. I can talk to anyone about anything. People listen when I point out problems and how to fix them. Everyone is really friendly, I get along with everyone on my team. When I have a question, it's easy to find someone who knows the answer, or who knows the person who does.

    Cons

    Sometimes I don't feel like my opinion matters enough. The pay could be a bit better. I feel stifled by process sometimes.
