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

    Pros

    Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

    Cons

    After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

    Advice to Management

    It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's a reason the "work hard" part of this company's tag line is first... You're going to work hard. But if you love what you do and have a passion for the innovative, always-pushing-forward culture, this could be a good fit.

    Cons

    Work life balance does not exist. At all.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create, innovate and change the world without burning your best and brightest out!
