    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    really good training, good salary for Bratislava related to similar position in other multinational company in Slovakia

    Cons

    bad shift, not very flexible... you have to go to work 30 minute before because your work-time starts when the platform on the pc is online....just 30 minute for lunch...and two pause of 15 minute in 9 hour inside the building. and you have to come back to the desk in perfect time to reactivate the platform or the metrics of the entire team will be affected -.-"

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Fernley, NV (US)

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

    Pros

    Pay is great considering you can get hired with no warehouse experience. They hire a lot of people right out of college and ex-military. Lots of opportunity to learn other jobs.

    Cons

    Advancement is limited unless you have a bachelor's degree (great place for college graduates). Most jobs are numbers driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training needed. Understanding why a task needs to be done a certain way would improve work quality. Many employees cut corners (cheat) in order to make their numbers.

    Pros

    Tremendous growth potential for high performers. The business is growing and dynamic. Provides opportunity for engaged leaders of people and owners of process.

    Highly demanding environment that insists on the highest performance. Amazon is not for the faint of heart.

    Pros

    Its a good company to work for. Very fast building environment and lots to learn. All the teams have start-up type environment. You need very strong leadership principles and everyone is willing to help.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a little screwed up. I have been coming to work over the weekends sometimes. You are thrown into a pool of ambiguity and you have to figure out things for yourself, no training is given.

    Pros

    There is a lot that needs to be done and they're poised to accomplish it. As an individual contributor, you can exercise some ambition. You can move internally after a year in your current position if you're in good standing, regardless of your manager's preference... but there could be long-term fallout if you move without that blessing. The high hiring bar means you usually work with very capable people.

    Cons

    Get your compensation target identified up front because that is just about all you're going to get for four years. Raises are sparse if you stay in your position/level - about 1% or so. Some of your compensation is in the form of RSUs. They will adjust your shares if the stock tanks and you will gain if the stock soars, so your best means to get a raise rests on the whims of the stock market. If you level up you can get a bump in pay. That process is subjective and not all reviewers are humanoid.

    As with all big companies, the experience varies in each individual group. Some groups have a horrible work/life balance where sticking up for yourself ultimately yields negative consequences.
