Pros

Great company, great pay, can be a lot of fun, great place to lose weight, outstanding training! Love Jeff Besos!

Cons

Extremely long hours, lack of care and empathy for hourly associates by senior leaders at local facility, all about numbers (felt like a slave driver), low regard for former military members at the local level, little to no loyalty to anyone or anything (with the exception of production numbers).

Advice to Management

Get rid of General Managers who never show up during off shifts to observe the challenges of night shift personnel. Additionally, senior General Managers must attend and learn ACES.

    Pros

    * Chance to work and learn things that happen at a mammoth scale.
    * If you are a workaholic, this is your place to be at and learn things quickly.

    Cons

    * Work Environment not on par with good companies like Microsoft, Google or Facebook.
    * Attrition rate is too high among employees.
    * The frugality involved in almost every aspect of the company seems to help no one other than the CEO himself.
