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

Pros

The products sound still good. Stocks are still good compared to some other companies.

Cons

Low salary. Values of lower-level employees are ignored.

Advice to Management

Be more professional. Don't self-feel too good.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The pay is decent that is literally the only plus

    Cons

    No stability
    Constant threats from upper management
    They love writing people up
    Very, very limited on personal time allowed to take off
    Do not accept doctors notes for illnesses
    Ruled by favoritism
    60 hour weeks even outside of peak
    Shifts are awful- there is no family/work balance
    HR never does their job and if you have a problem it takes days to fix and multiple tries
    known problems with their equipment that causes problems for employees never gets fixed
    Favorites are allowed to walk around and do nothing

    Advice to Management

    Quit acting like you are better than everyone else and actually do your job. Learn how to support your people and actually listen to what they have to say
