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

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

    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.
