Former Employee - Operations Manager in Greenville, SC (US)
Former Employee - Operations Manager in Greenville, SC (US)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great company, great pay, can be a lot of fun, great place to lose weight, outstanding training! Love Jeff Besos!

Cons

Extremely long hours, lack of care and empathy for hourly associates by senior leaders at local facility, all about numbers (felt like a slave driver), low regard for former military members at the local level, little to no loyalty to anyone or anything (with the exception of production numbers).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of General Managers who never show up during off shifts to observe the challenges of night shift personnel. Additionally, senior General Managers must attend and learn ACES.

    Current Employee - Buyer in Seattle, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Buyer in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative and creative, Amazon pushes the boundaries of e-tailing.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. Get ready for long hours, weekends and a work life balance that will be throw off your social schedule. Amazon will due the bare minimum to fall in line with city, state and national laws and regulations but don't expect anything more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to see high turnover as long as the current structure exists. Lack of respect, trust and career development are just a few shortcomings of the Amazon culture.

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

    Pros

    Rapid growth
    Strong leadership
    Lots of opportunities to grow and work on exciting projects
    Amazon culture (if you're a good fit)

    Cons

    None of the usual tech perks (e.g. free lunch, etc.) - in fact, frugality is a core tenet
    Promotions are a reward for having done the level up job, not a prerequisite to doing the job
