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

    Pros

    Competative pay
    Good benefits
    A few decent people still work there.

    Cons

    Shady operation- when something doesn't work, they don't look at the broken pieces, they blame the people rather than work with them to correct the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play the double jeopardy game (have a corrective discussion with the employee then turn around and write them up for the same issue that had already been discussed and corrected). Also, quit changing policies just because you're not getting the results you want. Give the current policies a chance to take hold and results to happen.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

    Cons

    Operations Environment has high turnover
    Overworked
    High Stress
    Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

    Advice to Management

    Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.
