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

Many internal resources to help accomplish goals & drive business.

Saw a lot of people thrown under the bus in meetings with upper management.

Advice to Management

The promotion process is archaic and should be more merit based.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of hours if you are in need of working hours no question. Lots of moving around, I enjoy moving while I work.

    Cons

    Work / Life ballance. You can't really do anything else if you work here. Working two jobs is almost impossible and making plans in advance to do other things is also almost impossible as they can force mandatory overtime on you at the very last second.
    I question how some of the supervisor staff got to their position at times. Also have seen unhappy ''problem solvers'' throw things and behave all around ''Ghetto'' at my location.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing alright. Definately provide decent work to those who really need it which is great. I'm not sure if it's possible but giving the workers more flexibility with their shifts would make this place perfect. Overtime hours set in stone and given to us on the fly is annoying for employees who are also working other places. Not that big of a deal for those who use this as their primary work though.

    Advice to Management

    Lower level employees feedback should be considered often seen its just waste of time giving feedback to HR BP
