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

Pros

their Benefits are good, the regular associates are good people, the assistant managers are the hardest working part of the management team.

Cons

Upper management has no clue what goes on on a day to day basis, lunch break is only 30 min., parking is a joke during peak season.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the people in your department, and not just the numbers that are being produced

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

    Pros

    smart colleagues,a lot of flexibility with working hours and implementing ideas

    Cons

    bad bosses screw up the system

    Advice to Management

    Some bosses are bad bosses and their input should not hinder future hiring. I was a contractor and did a wonderful job launching a pilot program. My boss was in the hotseat with his boss and saw me as a threat- He gave bad feedback about me which has hindered me getting future contract gigs there and I did a wonderful job. The system sucks
