I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Highly decentralized work environment - every team has its own culture. So pick the right team
A very talented set of people to work with at that time

Cons

Lethargy? I don't know how else to put it. Things move really slow. Painfully slow. Easy to lose motivation.

    Pros

    Amazon is a great company to work for. I think the casual business environment really increases employee productivity - there is no judgment, you can throw on a pair of jeans and head to work so long as you are raising the bar. You are expected to be a go-getter, and be able to handle ambiguity. This company is meant for those who want to continuously be challenged and provide actionable insight.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work long days.
