    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only pro is that the facility has a set schedule 99% of the time. Cheap benefits that people can afford.

    Cons

    No job security.. If they do not like you, they will not promote you. They promote people who are not with the company for a long period of time. The pay is horrible for the type of work you do. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing.

    The fulfilllment center is disgusting. Nothing is clean. Food products are in bins next to soap products and or pet food. How is that sanitary

    There is no motivation whatsoever for employees to do their job. Promotions are not based on how long you've been there, it's based on an attendance point system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to look in the mirror. Are you satisifed with the pay check that you are getting/ This company is getting worse by the minute... You guys are collecting a pay check and not earning one. Try getting dirty for once, work with your employees. They are the ones who are making the company operate and meeting the company's goals. Try being a people person. Don't talk down to the employees as if they were a 5 year old. Treat people with respect and you might get some in return.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart peers,
    Good pay,
    Freedom and ownership.
    Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

    Cons

    Work-life balance
    No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
