    I have been working at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Atmosphere is great and everyone who works there is very intelligent.
    They provide you with lots of responsibility and ability to move up.
    There are many email lists for different activities (ie. starcraft full time vs interns) and everyone is willing to help you with any problems that you face.

    Cons

    Sometime frugality is taken a bit further than it needs to be.
    There is a very steep learning curve for all of their internal technologies and the documentation doesn't always help you solve your problems.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazon "hordes" smart people and you work with a lot of smart people. The business is ever changing, even expanding so you get lots of opportunities and challenges.

    Cons

    Amazon likes to hire smart people but once they are in, the senior leadership does not spend time developing the people and does not "care" about them. Sometimes they hire people who are really over-qualified for the tasks, thus demoralizing people. Working people hard is ok, but leaders also must show that they appreciate and care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show that you care
