    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    health, dental, vision benefits
    4 days work, 3 days off (depending on shift)
    monthly bonus (varies by warehouse)

    Cons

    average pay
    long hours on feet
    very physically demanding
    sometimes you get the feel of being overworked, underpaid and not appreciated but it's work right?

    Advice to Management

    promote the person who deserves it by looking at productivity not by who can lie the best during the interview or favoritism.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great products and technologies. Employees out of my own groups were very communicative and easy to work with. Internal client group was great. Easy to please, when their past relations with recruiting were so poor.

    Cons

    Very "generationally and self oriented". Treats contractors like dirt and are very political. Was actually "pinged" for successfully finishing project ahead of schedule utilizing a new approach to sourcing. Have NEVER been treated so poorly by my hiring managers in my 15+ years career.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your employees are also customers who buy as well.
