Not a great place to work as Full-time perm

Former Employee - Software Engineer
Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Amazon.com full-time

Pros

lots of money and good benefits

Cons

no time to live your life. The hours will kill any family life you want. They hire you and you have a brief honeymoon period of about 1 month but after 2 months the honeymoon is over. Be prepared to work your butt off and if you can't then be ready to work somewhere else. Oh and the signing bonus they will want that back if you didn't last a year at amazon. I feel sorry for all the college students getting out of college and working for amazon. Amazon is using and abusing you. Believe it.

    Pros

    Good relocation compensation.
    3 days off.

    Cons

    Amazon treats it's employees really poorly.
    You have no say in what shift you will work...you basically sell your soul to the company.
    Work extremely long hours.
    Extremely disorganized company.
    Don't offer any type of valuable training.
    Expected to micromanage even though they claim that it's not what they want to do.
    Very high turn over rate.
    Amazon doesn't do anything to keep it's managers happy.
    Work environment feels like a sweatshop.
