Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Pay. You are well compensated for your time while hourly, but once crossing the bridge to salaried...
stocks. Variable compensation bonus (monthly or quarterly) . You will work hard, but its challenging/interesting work.

Cons

work. life. balance. Have a kid? be prepared not to see them. Same for a spouse. Once you are a level 4 (area manager and up) prepared to work from home answering emails almost constantly. Its a fine fit for someone young/single but beyond that, the hours 50-55 regularly, 70-80 during "peak" if not more.

Advice to Management

Balance the work loads better by hiring more staff. Standard work is a buzz word we throw about constatly, but its not practiced from building to building and shift to shift.
