    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people you can work with. A good place to learn a lot

    Cons

    Leadership encourages cutthroat atmosphere. Everyone looks out for them selves. And finds every opportunity to climb by stepping on others. Peers won’t hesitate to put you down in order to look good. Lack of ownership

    Advice to Management

    Discourage cutthroat mentality. Stop team members from pushing each other down especially with leadership visibility and other business partners.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    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.
