    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.

          Approves of CEO

          I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          Great managers, love the culture, daily variety, amazing benefits from day 1, not your typical warehouse job because you are actually valued for the work you put in.

          Cons

          long hours, maybe more pay

          Advice to Management

          Please allow line workers to have a chair... feet are literally swollen after a 10 hour shift and a simple stool with the option of sitting would only increase the amount of people who stay happy and come into work.
