Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner
Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner

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

Pros

If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
Less company politics than most companies

Cons

Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
Share door desks with others, no personal space
Don't do enough with community service

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes

    Good salary, Fair opportunity for advancement, smart people

    Be more consistent and look at merits rather than popularity
