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

Pros

start you off with great sign on bonus and benefits, relocation company they use is great, and the stock options are great.

Cons

too many to list, no home work balance, growth potential too slow unless you uproot your family again. This is the reason the turnover rate at amazon is so high, will they ever get it?

Advice to Management

open your eyes and promote the people worth promoting, if they would stop moving people around every 2 months then the growth of managers would actually be seen.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

    Cons

    One gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.

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

    Pros

    Easy quick hiring process. And for that it does pay better then most quick hire jobs. Easy to learn operations and decent work out.

    Cons

    Hard labor and working with the dumbest people ever. After making a suggestion I was told just to do what I'm told because this is like "slave labor".

    Advice to Management

    Improve training process for new employees so that they can learn multiple jobs. Thus making days seem more interesting because one wouldn't be doing the same thing over and over. Maybe this would help retain good workers.
