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

Pros

Pay I thought was above average
hours - was perfect 4 -10 hr shifts

Cons

Lack of communication between managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicated with managers before so everyone is not telling employees to do different things.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very cooperative and helpful. You always see good moods among the fellow employees. I had the chance to make big friendships there.

    Cons

    Too demanding work. You have to learn and do all by yourself - don't expect anyone to show you how to do your job. Look in the company internal wiki.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was very disappointed with the decision of the company to lay me off. I never had the chance to receive a feedback from my manager and never had the chance to understand why I was fired.

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

    Pros

    -No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful!
    -Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met!
    -This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up.
    -Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

    Cons

    -It's hard work. Every day.
    -The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.
