    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good exposure, big opportunities. Learned to refine business planning logic, write white-papers, and enhanced my understanding and application of "data driven decisions".

    Cons

    Unrealistically demanding, level and pay does not escalate in correlation with demands. Environment of negative and critical feedback at all times - in most cases to the detriment of team and individual morale. A culture of never being satisfied or appreciated, regardless of your competency or level of contribution.

    I have been working at Amazon

    Pros

    Grab available hours that fit your schedule. Awesome people. Team work. Great location.

    Cons

    Hard to catch shifts. You have to be available to catch shifts when they drop. Nothing bad to say.

    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.
