    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not in a huge city
    Interesting work
    Chance to make an impact

    Cons

    Senior management and district/corporate management treat everyone at FCs like dirt. It's like the real amazon is in Seattle and the FCs are dirty skeletons in the closet that the "real" amazonians hate. The way salaried managers have to deal with hourly employees kind of ruins the whole thing.

    Advice to Management

    Get amazon on one of those best places to work lists by LISTENING and VALUING YOUR PEOPLE!

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - High caliber of employees
    - Wide range of responsibilities expected of everyone
    - Good compensation
    - Fast-paced environment

    Cons

    - Work overload. No boundaries when it comes to working nights, weekends, and any time you may want to have a non-Amazon thought. This is after 12.5 years in 6 different departments.
    - Cut Throat - the culture there is intense, and not for the fainthearted. Since there is a strict policy of cutting the bottom 10 percent per year, it creates an environment where managers are _looking_ for someone faltering.
    - Customer-Not employee-centric.

    Advice to Management

    - Chill out.
