    Current Employee - Warehouse Associate
    Current Employee - Warehouse Associate

    I have been working at Amazon.com (more than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro in my opinion is the pay versus the same kind of job at other companies. Hourly you can make 2-7 dollars more than the same job at another warehouse job not even being management. Also 3 days off a week.

    Cons

    The con depend on the specific place shift dept ect. I have bounced around and found my biggest issues to be the temperature extremes and rate required of work. Other things are management. There's simply too many people for you to matter. It is what it is. Do my shift and get out.

    Pros

    Amazon is fine, very customer obsessed

    Former Employee - Production Manager in Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Production Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are good but the work-life balance is not understood by management, the work environment is set up as open space not cubicals to work in, causing complaints about noise disturbing other employees.

    Cons

    Very limited in growth opportunity, micro-managed, not appreciated for the hard work. Treated like a robot not a human being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation is not fair,

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leverage when dealing with publishers

    Cons

    Compensation is mostly based on how well the stock is doing because base is low while RSUs are rewarded

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to take full ownership of roles and responsibilities.
    Project work can be interesting.
    The place is filled with intelligent, motivated people.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance.
    The pace is too fast when it doesn't always need to be.
    The performance bar can be unrealistically high sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve work life balance. Amazon could be a fantastic place to work but management expects too much from employees.

    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    The Pay was great and everyone was very friendly and the training was good.

    Cons

    VERY VERY high staff turn over.
    Huge targets to meet were some days was not possible.
    Feed back system customers use for agents damages targets even if agent dos everything correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise would be to change how you look at your staffs stats just because a customer gave him a 1 star rating may not mean that agent was bad just maybe a very annoyed customer. But management don't take that into account sadly.
