Neutral Outlook
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.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive. The insurance is very good. You are given a significant amount of responsibility in order to develop.

    Cons

    You are required to work at least 1 weekend day every week. Compensation is based on the time you have worked for the company, not performance. Responsibility and expectations at the management level can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Get around the facility more often. Meet the people in the departments and give more real time quality feedback. Actionable feedback allows for more effective shifts.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can not think of one reason to like this company

    Cons

    Jeff Bezos should pack in one of his "Fulfillment Centers" for about a month undercover to see just how bad the company is. Company does not care about employee retention. Turnover is at 55 %. Does that sound good to you?

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your people as people NOT machines, If you want machines BUILD THEM.
