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

Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

    Cons

    One gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
