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

Pros

The people are intense and intelligent. They like to have fun, and they work hard. Kindle has autonomy to do a lot of things first, so innovation is rampant.

Cons

The team you are on makes all the difference. If you are on a team that is not well-managed, you are in trouble.

Advice to Management

Fight for the ones that you find valuable. Sometimes that means allowing people to transfer early.

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

    Pros

    Managment listens to employees on any and all suggestions. Managers and HR have an open door all the time. Moral is always up. Monthly bonus, stocks.

    Cons

    Rotation of temps, communication between shifts, standards being changed but not communicated.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that while something looks good on paper, unless your the one in the floor every day doing it, you dont know if it does or does not work and why
