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
