Former Employee - Outbound Pack in Cayce, SC (US)
Former Employee - Outbound Pack in Cayce, SC (US)

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

Pros

Can not think of one reason to like this company

Cons

Jeff Bezos should pack in one of his "Fulfillment Centers" for about a month undercover to see just how bad the company is. Company does not care about employee retention. Turnover is at 55 %. Does that sound good to you?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your people as people NOT machines, If you want machines BUILD THEM.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Hyderābād (India)
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Hyderābād (India)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start your career right after college, Good job profile, smart co-workers.

    Cons

    Too much politics, overwhelming work, no work life balance, extra burden of oncall which doesn't count into your weekly accomplish task, its like a side job that you have to take care without delaying your other tasks and projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to exercise better judgement while allocation projects and define precise deadline since a person can work at max 12 hours in a day daily.

    Current Employee - Area Manager in Greenville, SC (US)
    Current Employee - Area Manager in Greenville, SC (US)

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

    Pros

    Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

    Cons

    Operations Environment has high turnover
    Overworked
    High Stress
    Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.
