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

    Pros

    The company seems to prefer younger folks than the older. Very exciting in a sense that there's always a lot to do and learn if you want to.

    Cons

    There's a high turnover. Many people burn out. Productivity is placed so high that management takes a long time to fill an empty opening.

    Advice to Management

    Please fill a vacant spot sooner so that the rest can balance work and life. It will improve productivity and creativity.
