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

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits. I work with amazing people that want to do their best.

    Cons

    Exhausting work within the FC environment. I can only move so fast and I am always worried about my rate and I do pretty good. It is really hard to "move up" now. I have had a couple interviews and was inclined, but I never was offered a higher position.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the 10% increase in productivity unless you invest in tools so that it can be done without the expense of the physical deterioration of us. The drones are a nice idea, but how about better software and more reliable conveyors. Stop driving data so hard that you forget the people. The "good" managers (people managers) leave us and only the "data" driven managers are left. The people managers are pushed out and not treated well. They are helping us on the floor and get left out and then judged that they are not doing well. The culture needs to change. It looks great on paper. I am sure Jeff Bezos's thinks that is what is being done, but he is out of touch with what is going on.
