    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, stock options once you've been there for at least a year, if you like a fast paced environment where you're always on your feet, this job is for you!

    Cons

    Though the job is fast paced, sometimes the time allowed to pick a item can be unreasonable, especially when it's on the opposite side of the floor you're on. It encourages people to basically run to their next pick so they stay within times, which can be a safety concern. There were many times (especially during the holidays) where I nearly got ran over or someone crashed into me while they were trying to get their pick...

      Positive Outlook
      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.
