    Pros

    Ability to be relocated to many places, Monthly bonus, high sign on bonuses, fast paced environment which builds on leadership.

    Cons

    Small base raise for annual reviews, compensation structure & raises built around inital reserved stock offering, long hours, no holidays off except Christmas and New Years day.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your staff as they are the customers as well. Strong leadership and less politics would make it a lot better place for everyone.

    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.
