I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunity! Great work environment with lot's of growth. Opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get work done.

Cons

Way too many hires from Microsoft and the company is becoming bureaucratic with a lot of posing and undermining others. Before you did not have to worry about politics and could focus on your work but now work has aloes down, more meetings and ess productivity. Many old Amazonian's have left, not simply from stock vest but because the work-people are coming to the company since the stock has done well, not because they want to work hard, have fun and make history!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do something to screen people who are interested in the company for greed and a self interest.
HR needs improvement. No ethics!

    Pros

    Challenging. Innovative. Iterates to perfection. Customer-centric.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Overburdens employees. Cheap, not frugal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire for the work needed rather than assign work to whomever is available.
