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

Pros

Great benefits, salary, and career opportunities
Surrounded by top talent
Looks great on a Resume

Cons

Work/Home life balance is difficult
Change comes too fast, too often, and it does not have a common sense approach. Change comes in silos and is usually done for window dressing rather than attacking root causes to barriers.
Knowledge comes at a premium and is hoarded; not shared.

    So much for "attack the process, not the person".

    Former Employee - Support Staff in Fernley, NV (US)

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

    Pros

    Competative pay
    Good benefits
    A few decent people still work there.

    Cons

    Shady operation- when something doesn't work, they don't look at the broken pieces, they blame the people rather than work with them to correct the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play the double jeopardy game (have a corrective discussion with the employee then turn around and write them up for the same issue that had already been discussed and corrected). Also, quit changing policies just because you're not getting the results you want. Give the current policies a chance to take hold and results to happen.
