    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The engineers are generally quite good.

    Cons

    Everything is a death march. Management drives crises and expects heroic efforts (often involving band-aid solutions) to be the norm. On-calls on the teams are often stuck working around the clock when it's their turn on rotation. Good engineers can't shine under these sweatshop-like conditions. Teams are fiefdoms, and managers constantly fight over resources and priorities, leaving their engineers as the victims. Managers are also poorly trained in handling typical operational matters such as personnel issues. The benefits (healthcare, education, time-off/holidays, etc.) are substandard for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Behave like adults. Constantly putting your teams into high-pressure, high-stakes situations does not incentivize performance, as you seem to believe. Take a look at how other tech companies treat their employees (as valuable assets rather than interchangeable cogs) with regard to work conditions, work/life balance, and benefits.
