    Pros

    Great company. Lots of intelligent people. Tons of opportunity to work on different products and GTM strategies.

    Cons

    Slow promotions, very political hierarchy. Management is too busy to develop anyone and you find yourself taking on as many projects as possible just to get noticed.

    Current Employee - Fulfillment Associate in Miami, FL (US)

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

    Pros

    Like any other associate we are just one step forward. We are consider to be in the Leadership team. Work is hard but is enjoyable when you are with the right people and when people respect you as you respect them. Leadership is awesome and there is great communication between all of them.

    Cons

    Associates spend to much time on the belt complaining there paycheck and amount of work. They just stand talking about nothing and want others to do their job for them. Sometimes its noisy with the Pit drivers and the sort alarm. Sometimes temperature got as high as 78 degrees which make it feel like it is 90 because of constant movement.

    Pros

    smart people, flexible hours, best cloud infrastructure in the world.
    Overall very talented people working with each other, especially AWS has some of the best calibers in the industry.

    Cons

    poor compensations, on-calls duties, management sometimes don't know what the heck they are doing.
    Compensation is a joke compared to other competitors in the industry. For the amount of work that people do, at least have some respect and pay them properly!
