Pros

Stable company that has high safety standards when many other warehouses do not

Cons

Amazon has a habit of working their employees very hard. Most of them burn out or they find a way to terminate the rest of their employees after two years.

    Pros

    Amazon has key leadership principles that they live and breath by. Everyone is passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    At Amazon you need to be able to manage your work life balance. You will be passionate about what you do, and everyone else is as well. It's very easy to take work home with you!

    Pros

    great product to work for
    great and passionate people to work with

    Cons

    All directions and decisions are being made in Seattle, or if you are lucky, in Luxembourg - so you might have a say in it (i frankly never had)
    Actual results do not matter, just show off, change some numbers and you will be a star
    If you are bad, you will be treated badly. If you are good, you'll get more work, and probably will be treated less badly
    The training are made by in house employees who want to train. You want to learn SQL? good - let me train you. If you want external training - you'll have a bad time
    Frugality is one of the cornerstones of Amazon. But if you get a cheap laptop, no training, less budget to hire people ... it's just frustrating and makes you inefficient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frugality is blocking a lot of work and creates frustration. Ease up
    Listen to your employees - and if you listen, do care
    Do not reward arrogance
