I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Amazon has an independent work culture. The teams work cohesively but only with full independence. Assistance from team members is another plus.
Other pros:
cross functional
international exposure

Cons

Amazon has a system where your team has a huge impact on your experience.
If you're a bit out of luck, the work place can become slightly more demanding than usual.
Working hours can be a ted too much to handle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

World's most customer centric company needs to take good care of its employees too.

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

    Pros

    great product to work for
    great and passionate people to work with

    Cons

    All directions and decisions are being made in Seattle, or if you are lucky, in Luxembourg - so you might have a say in it (i frankly never had)
    Actual results do not matter, just show off, change some numbers and you will be a star
    If you are bad, you will be treated badly. If you are good, you'll get more work, and probably will be treated less badly
    The training are made by in house employees who want to train. You want to learn SQL? good - let me train you. If you want external training - you'll have a bad time
    Frugality is one of the cornerstones of Amazon. But if you get a cheap laptop, no training, less budget to hire people ... it's just frustrating and makes you inefficient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frugality is blocking a lot of work and creates frustration. Ease up
    Listen to your employees - and if you listen, do care
    Do not reward arrogance
