Former Employee - Operations Manager in Greenville, SC (US)

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

Pros

Great company, great pay, can be a lot of fun, great place to lose weight, outstanding training! Love Jeff Besos!

Cons

Extremely long hours, lack of care and empathy for hourly associates by senior leaders at local facility, all about numbers (felt like a slave driver), low regard for former military members at the local level, little to no loyalty to anyone or anything (with the exception of production numbers).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of General Managers who never show up during off shifts to observe the challenges of night shift personnel. Additionally, senior General Managers must attend and learn ACES.

    Pros

    Learned a LOT by doing lots of different things, good guidance from managers and peers, had tons of responsibilities, great experience post-MBA. Super smart co-workers. A strong customer oriented, disruptive business philosophy that drives amazing innovation and build news business. Great CEO.

    Cons

    Worked a lot with little work-life balance. Management and supervisors care little about your career, or personal time, or overall career growth.
