You Work Hard AND Get Paid Well for It!

Administration (Current Employee)

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

ProsChallenging, face-paced work environment with a strong customer service focus. Employees are encouraged to "Work Hard, Have Fun, Make HIstory". That's just what we're doing!

ConsUneven workload distribution. High performing employees seem to get "dumped on" while low performers slide by while pocketing the same salaries. Very discouraging and unfair. My peers have time for chats, social networking and extended breaks while I can't seem to stay above water.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement work logs and pay attention to workload distribution. Don't burn out your best performers!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
