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

    Pros

    Great culture. Large company. Lots of opportunity with Kaizen and process improvement. Plenty of autonomy as a manager.

    Cons

    Long, long, long hours during the holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    My only real issue was that I had things I enjoyed doing outside the company. As an actor, I had a role come up around peak season that needed me for four weeks starting in late November. I had the vacation and personal time to cover it, but it just wasn't possible. Wish I could have worked around it, but the opportunity was too great for me.

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

    Pros

    They do try to keep morale up with company parties and picnics, individual groups also have frequent outings. Good benefits, health, life, local transit. The longer you work, the more vacation you get...tops out at 4 weeks per year.

    Cons

    Lack of resources is pretty common--do more with less at all costs even late into the night.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to advance your career path shouldn't have so much red tape...it should be easier for individuals to try out new groups and opportunities.
