Personal Life, What is That?

Human Resources Business Partner (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
