I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The pay is good, and there's a great work environment there, with many chances to prove yourself. There is a constant push to advance your career, and you are given many opportunities to succeed.

Cons

There are not nearly as many perks as working at a place like Google. Above the base salary, the only other good perks is the stock units, which is pretty standard at any big company. The atmosphere of frugality goes too far sometimes, as it can be hard for an SDE to even get a second monitor

Advice to Management

Loosen up some and give your trusted employees the same kinds of perks that other top-notch companies give if you want to be considered a top-notch company

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    big name on resume, you will learn to see the things end to end

    Cons

    Salary is less compared to other leaders in industry, absolutely no work life balance, no training, no personal development, no good leaders in upper management. The management can take time to complete its deliverables but SDEs do not get extension on deadlines. Too much politics in the organization. Amazon.com Shipping/Transportation dept is the worst department ever for SDEs. The SDMs look like kids from kindergarten with absolutely no people management skills.

    Advice to Management

    I am sure amazon.com Stock is a big bubble which will burst very soon. Company has 30-40% growth in revenue but the profit is negative
