    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great on-boarding process for new team members. Great learning opportunities (training, job shadow, certification paths). Everybody is very helpful and friendly. A strong and very capable team. Low administrative overhead with a lot of things being done lean. The Amazon Leadership Principles come up in pretty much everything we do and is something that serves as inspiration.

    Cons

    The drawback of being on a fast-growing team is that almost everybody in the team is new to Amazon. We compensate for this by having mentors elsewhere in the organization and by being resourceful in settling in.

    Pros

    Good compensation and you will always find work, amazon never goes out of employment.

    Cons

    fast-paced environment, may not be suitable for older people, Punjabi is the second (first) language. Some of the process assistants don't know what it likes to be polite.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline the process assistants to behave politely with associates. Too much pressure to perform more
