Amazon is an outstanding company to work at. The benefits are amazing, as well as the culture and environment. Amazon as a whole, inspires one to grow and learn.

Senior Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) - Cape Town, Western Cape
Amazon does not care about their employees and try to hide behind the facade of being the earth’s most “customer centric” environment, when they forget to pay attention to the most important customers, the internal customers (employees). However I have a learnt a lot here and appreciate the opportunities that I have been given.
Pros
No free lunches
Cons
Long Hours

Very energetic place to work. Great management and guidance. Work culture is fun and customer orientated. Hardest thing are rude customers. Most enjoyable part of working for amazon is the top performer prizes.

Virtual Technical Associate - WFH (Current Employee) - Cape Town, Western Cape
Great employment benefits but salary is not competive for professionals. More catered for younger professionals due to 11 hour shifts. Structure for Operations can be improved, happy staff leads to more success. Not recommended for long term unless you decide to have a career with Amazon.
Pros
Work From Home
Cons
Night shift, long shifts.
