No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

You can bring your dog to work.

Cons

No one cares about you, it is all about the task at hand. Limited long term future shared.

Advice to Management

If you truly believe in your leadership principles, understand the laws of diminishing returns of your "human capital"

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

    Pros

    -The benefits: All in all, the benefits are definitely fantastic.
    Holiday pay is awesome.
    Management is unbelievably down to earth and understanding to any issues that may occur. They are here to help you succeed as they say. I have never came across a job as helpful as Amazon in terms of caring for their employees.
    They are huge on safety policies and will not let you work in unsafe conditions/environments
    The opportunities to grow within this company is outstanding!

    Cons

    I have notice some cases of "favoritism" between management and employees.
    The rates can get difficult especially on those bad days.
    Sometimes, the system will glitch and I would have to really work tough during these glitches to keep my rate up.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun and challenging problems every day.
    I get to work alongside and learn from some of the smartest people I know.
    There are so many ways to have a big impact on millions of people.
    A chance to participate in history.

    Cons

    Its really challenging to keep a good work life balance here, and that seems to be by design.
    It's a bit of a chaotic environment and isn't always the easiest place to get things done.
