    I have been working at Amazon for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are for many support teams that are always creating new tools for employees to use. they have metrics for nearly every aspect of their business.

    Cons

    hours can be very demanding. It is expected to be available to work nights and weekends if necessary. Kiss your life goodbye in Q4.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of the fallout that is generated with your vendors when certain initiatives are undertaken.

    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.
