    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    3 days off per week

    Cons

    Communication very poor
    very young managers
    do not promote from within as much as they could
    Feel like cattle being herded
    Some managers treat hourly workers like children and with disrespect
    I am a college graduate and tried move up but their communication and interview processes were so poorly run that I left and much happier at company where I am respected and valued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training is a joke
    Managers need more mentoring (young and old) not just those right out of collegE
    Procedural changes n red to be better communicated

    Current Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer in Hyderābād (India)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Compensation
    Opportunity to work on great open source technologies
    Leadership Principles (only if you team believes in them)
    You can disagree with you manager

    Cons

    Your manager can not disagree with his manager and hence you have to do whatever your manager's manager asks you to do.
    Very poor work life balance.
    Working for long hours is not considered to be a stretch but as an expected contribution.
    If you are unlucky enough to have a weak manager, you would be eclipsed by the whims of your senior manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand the feasibility of any initiative before forcing it over your subordinates.
    Be practical, not egoistic.
    Be open to ideas even if they are against your strongest convictions.
