Current Employee - Customer Service Associate

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

Pros

Great training, latest equipment, good start out pay, great people to work with

Cons

Family referrals for employment( husband manager, wife in a different management position as well). Managers and.leads are not coordinated, no chance of advancement Empty promises, customer obsession should be declared as psychological analysis of frustrated individuals. Metric system is totally inaccurate . Long working hours, enforced shift bids, hardly any vacation time can be taken....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on outsourcing and see the results in a few years.Cant have people in India, South Africa and the Philippines taking care of re occurring problems just because you want to go cheap

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern they provided great opportunities to try different projects and even meet with different departments and positions. Given a good amount of ownership and had great management and career leadership.

    Cons

    When starting as a new employee I was surprised by the lack of on-boarding effort and introductions, but that may differ depending on the department and timing. You just have to ask a lot of questions and put yourself out there.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    big name on resume, you will learn to see the things end to end

    Cons

    Salary is less compared to other leaders in industry, absolutely no work life balance, no training, no personal development, no good leaders in upper management. The management can take time to complete its deliverables but SDEs do not get extension on deadlines. Too much politics in the organization. Amazon.com Shipping/Transportation dept is the worst department ever for SDEs. The SDMs look like kids from kindergarten with absolutely no people management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am sure amazon.com Stock is a big bubble which will burst very soon. Company has 30-40% growth in revenue but the profit is negative
