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

    Pros

    You will get a lot of great experience and typically get from the job what you put into it. You will transition frequently to new positions and can learn a lot quickly. It is great to have so many opportunities to go within one company. If you don't like what you are doing, then you can find something completely different to try within the same company.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a nice desk job...this isn't it. You will be doing manual labor at some point if you're a good manager. You also might not get the best shift meaning it can affect your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more women into upper operational roles.

    Pros

    Great community. Very good starting pay.

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments and well as manager to associates

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people. You have quality people there and sometimes communication does not make it down to them.

    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.
