    Pros

    The company pays good salaries and, for the lucky ones, they offer a decent environment to work. Amazon is a huge channel and will make your work reach incredible visibility around the world, but don't fool yourself, you won get any extra bonus because your uncountable extra hours of hard work

    Cons

    During the hiring process, how about asking to your interviewer about company turnover ratio? The HR works hard to hire good engineers, but the internal culture of Zero training makes everybody to burnout in the first months. The managers have unreal expectations of all employees. They won't think twice before making a bad review of you because you didn't reached the ridiculous bar they set to you.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, employees need training and time to digest the culture. You're losing talents to Google and other companies because you're too frugal to buy a pair of glasses to see what is happening. How about using your own principles against yourself?
