    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 as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Amazon was a treat - every day was an adventure. I felt like being back in high-school... You share the office with smart and funny people who take their work very seriously but have absolutely no problem goofing about. Love the fact that people can bring dogs to work.

    Cons

    Hard to get your foot in the door...
