    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some groups are great others are a mess. Hope for the best, if not wait a year and change teams. The software developers seem to love the place because they are the ones actually working/building the innovative projects. The finance people are simply creating the reports. Good pay and benefits. Smart employees. Serious review process.

    Cons

    Lean headcount leaves teams overly stretched. As a result the promise of project work turns into working fire drills and random tasks 80% of the time. High turnover leaves projects partially done with no explanation of why it was being done and how to finish it as planned creating complete chaos. Poor team dynamics.

    Advice to Management

    Given the high turnover both internally and external the company needs to focus on the overall transition process to ensure the work done by past employees is well documented so tribal knowledge stays within the organization, creating a more efficient and effective work environment.

    I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    newer warehouse, newer technology, has robots to bring items to you rather than older warehouse where you had to physically walk and find the items

    Cons

    some managers show favoritism with certain employees. some of them were young so they favored the young ones.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
