    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The supervisors were friendly and personable. The benefits were good.

    Cons

    They weren't fair with some of their policies such as being cross-trained in different areas. Also they forced overtime when not needed. Would not let the workers lean on something making us have to stand in one spot for 10 hours. The air inside the facility was harmful to me.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up and treat your employees better.

    Pros

    It's a great place to learn, grow, innovate, create, and make history. You have an amazing opportunity to do some amazing things here.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be better. They still joke about "owning" you after you become a blue-badge. Working OT is expected and basically a "norm" to survive the pace. Typical work week can be 50+ hours if there is a lot of deadlines to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better about organization wide changes and business direction.
