No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amazon Robotics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Worked with some great customers and about a dozen good teammates

Cons

All my years of hard work and dedication were for nothing. The company never once recognized the hard work customer relationships I built.

Advice to Management

Have some guts and integrity! Stand by workers who make you look good. And for god sake, fire a manager or two and take some responsibility. It's not a surprise why they lost money every year, no one owned responsibility for anything.

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

    Pros

    Great location and close to the highway. It's better than being unemployed, but not much better. Free cereal and soda......big deal.

    Cons

    Far too many managers, not enough workers. Workers, especially contractors that I know, are treated like crap. Job descriptions are vague, and changed on a whim. Training is virtually non-existent. You figure things out for yourself. Communication between management and employees is poor. Systems are inadequate and middle-level management is very egotistical. There are lots of good hard-working people there, both contract and permanent, who will leave skid marks behind when the economy gets better. They will get the hell out of there in droves.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and contractors, and treat them with dignity, not like the parts in one of the robots you make. These are people who chose to work there. Treat them ethically, clarify your expectations and stop forcing people to work 10-11 hours days due to the workload.
