I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Company pays for insurance. The warehouse is amazing. They will have robots. Nice break rooms... free coffee, your so tired you can't enjoy any of it.

Cons

This place treats you like a robot!!! Runs as if your in the military. I would never recommend anyone to work here. Slave labor.

Advice to Management

Lay off your numbers. Treat your employee's right. Work faster...faster...faster...

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low tolerance for bs
    Document-based meetings make sure people have thought things through
    Very smart leadership

    Cons

    Managers are too busy to coach, or manage
    Long, long hours
    Un-even promotion bar across departments, low promotion rate to Sr. Manager or higher - bar is a lot lower for external hires into higher level position than in-house promotion

    Advice to Management

    If you find someone good enough to rate at the highest level for three consecutive reviews, promote them or coach them, or they will leave and work for your competitor.
