Pros

Good relocation compensation.
3 days off.

Cons

Amazon treats it's employees really poorly.
You have no say in what shift you will work...you basically sell your soul to the company.
Work extremely long hours.
Extremely disorganized company.
Don't offer any type of valuable training.
Expected to micromanage even though they claim that it's not what they want to do.
Very high turn over rate.
Amazon doesn't do anything to keep it's managers happy.
Work environment feels like a sweatshop.

    Pros

    Everyone is very cooperative and helpful. You always see good moods among the fellow employees. I had the chance to make big friendships there.

    Cons

    Too demanding work. You have to learn and do all by yourself - don't expect anyone to show you how to do your job. Look in the company internal wiki.

    Advice to Management

    I was very disappointed with the decision of the company to lay me off. I never had the chance to receive a feedback from my manager and never had the chance to understand why I was fired.
