    Pros

    Large company with many opportunities to explore your interests. You have the freedom to pursue projects you identify as long as you communicate your plans to management. The workforce is very diverse, which leads to a great pool of talent to learn from.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement program outside of the fulfillment centers. Only get six paid holidays in the US. Outside of Seattle, employees don't get paid sick leave, it's deducted from PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure communication of major changes and explain why.

    Pros

    Amazon base pay is $15 the hour with a .60 shift differential for working at night. That is for all workers regardless if seasonal or full time associate. However, once you are a full time associate, after 6 months you get an additional .25 and continues after 6 more months and so on until about $18.xx and I believe if you work the weekends you get an additional dollar. So if you work there for 3 years night time... and weekends, you can potentially earn about $19.

    Cons

    I dislike working at night but there is a lot more pros than cons.

    Advice to Management

    Train many people in other areas than normal because gives a sense of value to workers.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
