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

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses
    Lots of autonomy
    Opportunity for ownership
    Really smart people in business and tech
    Fast paced

    Cons

    Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven
    Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote.
    We need to streamline promoting from within.


  2. "An overall safe enviroment with many oppertunities to advance within the company."

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Safety was a huge priority with Amazon. They personally train evey employee and expect each associate to meet a general quota by the end of a week. The overall facility is extremely well organized and clean. Generally, most associates are kind and willing to aid one another to ensure an overall success for the company.

    Cons

    At times, the quota to make is slightly out of reach for associates not physically fit for their position. There is no forwarning of the end of your assignment, so termination is swift and unforseen. Breaks are not given in full as associates are expected to be back at their stations exactly at the end of each break. To make it back to your station in time, you often have to cut your break short in order to avoid receiving a written warning from your area manager.

    Advice to Management

    All managers ask associates to make the general standards set by Amazon so no favortism takes place. Managers often offer advice to help increase the rate of associates not quite making their quota.
