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

    Pros

    Safety and Work/Home balance is a priority. Benefits are generous even for PT employees from day one which together with starting pay kept me there until I reached FT promotion. Getting time off for family reasons and medical is generally easy to get approved. As long as you demand the best from yourself you are treated great and rewarded for such. Generally, advancements are hired from within so iif you are driven,...

    Cons

    You don't need to have lazy days. They are not tolerated so stay home if you can't perform to excellent par which is not so difficult if you have a strong personal work ethic. Generally you have to learn specifics of how to be successful from other experienced employees as there is a very short learning curve and management themselves don't generally take the time to provide the personal individual training you need...

    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.
