    Pros

    Amazon keeps its head down, ignores market sentiment and innovates quietly and continuously. They build large, complex software systems that solve interesting, real-world problems. All decisions are driven by the customer experience, often at the short-term expense of the company, since they have a mature, long-term attitude to return on investment. Employees are encouraged to be owners and there is little micromanagement -- if you're driven and competent, you have a lot of creative freedom and autonomy. They take complaints and concerns, even from new employees, seriously. You can, and are encouraged to, politely challenge any decision by your peers or superiors.

    Cons

    Amazon plays its cards close to its chest and it's frustrating not being able to talk about exciting products and other interesting stuff that goes on inside the company, particularly when recruiting. Frugality breeds creative, cost-effective solutions but can sometimes be taken too far. Development centres outside of the US can be treated as second-class and are sometimes overlooked when it comes to resources.

    Advice to Management

    Treat non-US employees with the same respect as US employees.
