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

    Pros

    It's a fun fast paced environment, always learning something different.

    Cons

    Not being able to stay extra hours, especially when the Director takes notice when your coming up on 38 hours for that week and your a part timer. At least the Director is doing his/her job.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of communication among management, they don't know the hours that each worker places in even though I volunteered many times over to stay late because I was asked to and a lot of other workers decided not to stay many times.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazon is "Mecca" of your dreams if you are an ambitious person who is constantly looking to learn and grow professionally and personally. I joined Amazon with 8 years of experience in HR and recruiting with fortune 500 companies. But Amazon is live changing, everyday brings on new challenges and motivate you to do better.

    Cons

    It's not a perfect world and it's constantly changing. So that can be a slight struggle as not every team is fast paced here but most of them are.

    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.
