    Pros

    Grade-A talent - by far the smartest people I've ever worked with. Engineering is on par with Microsoft, Google, and Facebook
    Product recognition - Everyone knows Amazon.

    Cons

    Work life balance is extremely poor. Go into this with your eyes wide open. This is a serious Amazon culture problem that doesn't just happen to other people.

    High attrition rate - the average employee tenure is around two years. This is because the signing bonus is paid over a two year period.

    Excessive culture of meetings - Developers and managers alike will find themselves in 4 to 9 hours of meetings a day. This is no exaggeration. Meetings are considered the insurance policy of communications. Something hasn't been said if it wasn't said in a meeting, to a group of people that were listed as attendees. (Case in point: this review isn't official unless I invite you to a meeting and have you read it in my presence.)

    Promotions are extremely difficult to maneuver. You're better off leaving and rejoining in order to move up a level.

    Advice to Management

    This is for Jeff Bezos and nobody else:

    1) The weekly CPR meetings ends up consuming days of effort just to prepare status. It's killing productivity. You know this.

    2) Adopt Agile

    3) Stack ranking is hurting the company. I've seen great talent get pushed out because of favoritism. What a shame.
