    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. Forget the paycheck, if you have full time availability the benefits alone are worth it.

    Cons

    Sometimes you work hard just to get paid as much as someone who slacks off and never gets caught.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key. Employees become complacent when they think their impact isn't valued.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
