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

    Pros

    Amazon offers great benefits like stock shares when you are full- time. Always busy so hours aren't and issue and competitive pay raises! You receive a raise every six months then they are given annually. Quick and easy to make money with a seasonal position.

    Cons

    Seasonal is comparable to sweatshop work! Very tuff physical labor and expect a mandatory schedule of 60 hours.- full time positions have been rumored ( and lived up to) unemployment after " maxing out on their payroll scales... Warehouse workers will make about $14 hourly and they find ways to fire people ( not my experience) after they have been maxed at the $14 hr mark.... You max out after about 4 years, right when employees are comfortable with their position and relying on the income... Amazon hubs do not seem to value their employees and do not tell a whole lot about their company in whole upon highering... Let alone your position and what your position means to the company.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good and there are lots of opportunities for career development. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is nonexistent. Workload is constantly ratcheted up without adequate support. Salaries are just average. Vast, bureaucratic organization includes a lot of careerists acting in nobody's interest but their own - lots of defending turf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason so many Amazon employees burn out after two or three years. Workload demands are simply not realistic. I'm tired of losing co-workers to places like Microsoft, where they can make just as much money and have evenings and weekends to themselves.
