    Pros

    Very fast working environment, great company. In amazon is always day 1 and u can learn a lot about the company, there is a lot of positions suitable for everyone. U can also travel abroad and apply for a position.

    Cons

    It s necessary to really manage your time as in amazon u start the day whit 10 things to do, during the day new challenges rise up, new stuff to do and u can finish the day whit more work that u started.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Nice office. Nice people

    Cons

    A lot of changes and without previous communication. They do not have in count feedback from employees despite they are always asking for it.
    Shifts not flexible at all and you have to fight to be able to go on holidays or change a day. Not planing on promotion as it is nearly impossible.

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    They pay well and their brand name is solid. If you manage to get a desk job you will manage to have a somewhat acceptable work-life balance

    Cons

    - Immense focus on numbers, very little regarding quality of work
    - Employees tend to form certain cliques with their specific nationality, pretentious teamwork that does not help and it's only for the show
    - Very long hours, work-life balance is non-existant, on top of that they are understaffed (and they're always going to be ) and there are frequent requests for overtime
    - Their ticketing system is a mess and counter-intuitive
    - DCO tech is really the closest thing to the blue collar working at their warehouses; Nobody cares about you.
    - Training is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Chill of a little with the numbers, and focus on proper training and employee needs
