  1. Always Something to do

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    Always keep busy, whether its monthly work or ad-hoc 'fires' to put out; there's always something going on. You have the ability to do what you want and go with it rather than seeking the approval of others.

    Cons

    Depending on the group could end up working a lot. Also, can be difficult getting help if needed, everyone's always busy.

  2. great company but a harsh environment

    Pros

    Opportunity is what you make of it, stretch assignments, global work. Job Security as it is a large company that rarely terminates in some Orgs.

    Cons

    Work/life balance, it is up to you to control it, as well as your own development, you have to do it all.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have lives and want to do the best they can for the company, running lean produces sub-par results.
