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

    Pros

    Good pay & Good benefits
    Respectful treatment and appreciation of employees that is unique compared to other companies in their industry (and really other companies in general)

    Cons

    At Fulfillment Centers the warehouse work is very physically difficult
    Amazon has high standards for work (rate) that not everyone can meet, even when they are trying

    Advice to Management

    Overall I am very satisfied with the Amazon management, I would suggest that they continue to show lots of appreciation for their employees and continue asking how they can do better.

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

    Pros

    Creative and innovative company. Eventually they'll need to make a profit!

    Cons

    A lot of arrogant employees who drank the kool-aide and really believe they're the best of the best. They're not! Lots of passive/aggressive back stabbing. Hyper critical feedback environment but with no true objective examples. Most is very subjective. Like that's constructive. Managers compete against each other at all levels across the organization therefore they tend to sacrifice their team in order to look good. Not at all motivating to work hard when that tends to permeate the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Make a profit. It's easy to operate and grow when your shareholders only care about stock growth. That won't last forever.
