    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits at Amazon are fabulous: Great health insurance almost completely paid for by the company, stock, 401K, monthly bonuses based on building success. Amazon is never boring for those in a role above that of Warehouse Associate or in a support role. Things are always changing to meet the needs of the customer and it is always challenging.

    Cons

    Amazon is experiencing phenomenal growth, still, while other companies may or may not be finally bouncing back in this economy. One of the problems they face, however, is that they have not paid enough attention to succession planning in the company. Amazon is crying for people to fill managerial and leadership roles because they haven't been raising up leaders from the warehouse level upward. The only thought to succession has been from an Area Manager or Ops Manager level upward.

    Advice to Management

    It's a bit late, but you need to begin developing people in the Tier1 through Tier 3 levels in order to fill some of those manager spots you cannot seem to keep filled. Eventually growth will hit a ceiling and stop without the leaders to support it.

    Pros

    All the leadership principles are part of the Job. Without which you cannot get into Amazon or cannot perform in Amazon.

    Cons

    There are no major cons. People do think that there might be too much of work. That again boils down to Leadership principles and no body forces them to do that way. It would be inherent

    Advice to Management

    tremendous growth when compared to projections. better to plan on Space.
