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

Pros

Killer, Cool company to work for.

Cons

Killer, cool company to work for - from the outside. Inside, it's an incoherent mess of angst, careful selection of what you say, and top down elite governance.

Advice to Management

If you are a master in politics, this is your place to shine.

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

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity for growth, Personally and Professionally. Stable and Growing company with a lot to offer if you are willing to move with the company.

    Cons

    Managers are too young, immature and inexperienced. Moods swings like children on the playground which ultimately effects the work flow and production. You can be left in a single position forever and no encouragement to advance.

    Advice to Management

    I work at the worst FC in the network and we make our concerns known to make things better.....LISTEN. Please re-evaluate your management selection process and veer from the good 'ol boy module. Associates are "customers" too.

    Long hours. Be prepared to come early and stay late.

    Advice to Management

    Overall really solid senior leadership team.
