    Pros

    Innovative, lots of career opportunity, decent pay, better than average benefits. Exponential company expansion: every day there seems to be an entirely new group or division created.

    Cons

    Expect to work more than the average 40 hour work week. HR department is a disorganized nightmare. It's easy to become pigeon-holed into a role or group, making it difficult to advance out of that group. Even intelligent, hard-working "super-star" employees are lost in the shuffle at Amazon because nearly everyone working here is like that, making it nearly impossible to stand out.

    Advice to Management

    I think they (Bezos and co.) know exactly how the company is doing, and they are just fine with that...
