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

Pros

The people were great. I met a lot of people that I was happy to work with. Most of the area managers were good people.

Cons

They do not hire real managers. Most of them do not know how to deal with people. It is all data management which for Tier III or lower makes life miserable. We never had the help or people to accomplish what was needed. I personally got very little support from my managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better communication. One purpose to a chain of command is that messages get passed down to those that need the information. Too often it was last minute information instead of planning and talking to people who need to be in the know. Very disappointed.

    Pros

    The pay at Amazon is very fair

    Cons

    They treat their employees as capital recources, not people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually show some real concern for your employees. You will end up with a happier and more prodcutive labor force.
