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

    Pros

    Pleasant environment.
    Often freebies, snacks, food... etc.
    They seem to care about customers

    Cons

    The pay isn't the greatest, but good for the area.
    They can fire you out of the blue with no warning and no discipline steps.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let HR bully you management, stand up for your employees. How can you admit you don't believe there was any intentional wrong-doing, then fire a person anyway with no written, no final, no nothing. This was the only job I've ever had that I actually liked. Thanks for ruining it for me.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    The most innovative company in the market with an incredible offering that really enables the business of the customers. The people who work here at all levels are astounding and brilliant. The product helps the customers like no offering I have ever been a part of. A trully game changing set of tools and solutions.

    Cons

    Lots of the cons depend on your sales manager as with all sales jobs. I struck out and landed the worst manager I have ever had. The company already has a culture of who can work harder and longer hours but my manager likes to assign mindless busy work. He never listens to his people and never under any circumstances agrees with us. The company has not had a sales staff so they have yet to learn how to get it done. They saddle us with onerous busy work - reports, QBRs, strategy documents, reviews on and on. Can I go sell please? Comp plan is fairly weak as well (recruiters really over sell it by a lot). I'll put up with it for the short term as I like enabling my clients but when the competition closes the gap I'll go find a culture that enables the sale people rather than micro-managing and dis empowering.

    Advice to Management

    The Romans did not rule the world by having meetings or doing reports. They did it by killing all who opposed them.
