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

Pros

There will always be work for you to do and you have the opportunity to learn different process paths if your area is slow.

Cons

People are treated like machines and numbers take precedent to anything else rather than customer obsession as the company claims. I find that operations and management are consistently inconsistent. I understand CAE 1 is a start up building but it should over the hump by now. Training is offered but managers are so number driven to where they won't even allow associates to complete their full training so they can hurry to get them on the floor to make a million mistakes, SMH.

Advice to Management

Learn how to manage people effectively and goals will be met. Too much cut throat, dog eat dog atmosphere in the fc's but there is always room for improvement. A college degree DOES NOT make you an automatic manager, need to scrap that philosophy very quickly.

    Pros

    The pay is good, and there's a great work environment there, with many chances to prove yourself. There is a constant push to advance your career, and you are given many opportunities to succeed.

    Cons

    There are not nearly as many perks as working at a place like Google. Above the base salary, the only other good perks is the stock units, which is pretty standard at any big company.

    The atmosphere of frugality goes too far sometimes, as it can be hard for an SDE to even get a second monitor

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up some and give your trusted employees the same kinds of perks that other top-notch companies give if you want to be considered a top-notch company
