    Pros

    Great company. Lots of intelligent people. Tons of opportunity to work on different products and GTM strategies.

    Cons

    Slow promotions, very political hierarchy. Management is too busy to develop anyone and you find yourself taking on as many projects as possible just to get noticed.

    I have been working at Amazon.com part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Like any other associate we are just one step forward. We are consider to be in the Leadership team. Work is hard but is enjoyable when you are with the right people and when people respect you as you respect them. Leadership is awesome and there is great communication between all of them.

    Cons

    Associates spend to much time on the belt complaining there paycheck and amount of work. They just stand talking about nothing and want others to do their job for them. Sometimes its noisy with the Pit drivers and the sort alarm. Sometimes temperature got as high as 78 degrees which make it feel like it is 90 because of constant movement.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazon pays well. You will also learn how to be assertive (aggressive) about your opinions, how to work type-A politics, and how to debug difficult code.

    Cons

    Amazon has some insane turnover. A little more than 1 year after I left, most of the people I knew there on LinkedIn have switched companies. It's not because those companies are great, or pay well - it's just because when you've been at Amazon for a year or two, your attitude tends to be "I don't see how it could get worse than this."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings and they might stick around a bit
