    Pros

    Steep learning curve. You will get a chance to influence products that are being used by millions. Experience looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    I would not recommend MBA's to join Amazon. There are a few roles out there which offer good experience but overall I would say 75% chances are that you will get disappointed with your experience. Talk to your colleagues (software and product) before taking up an offer.

    The company is very political in director level and up. Contrary to what some say, I have experience it first hand. Smart people in the company are typically not good manager and still get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is growing, pay attention to the cultural shift. It will to too late to change otherwise. Folks come here to work on the cool products but not for the company.
