I have been working at Amazon.com

Pros

Hardworking people committed to constantly innovating and reinventing, ability to create and monitor content, vast and immense experience working in a fast-paced environment that can turn on a dime.

Cons

Be prepared to give up work/life balance, as most jobs require 50 hour weeks absolute minimum. Willingness to be on call 24/7. Depending on your team, proper social form goes out the window; it's a sink-or-swim type of place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rethink the review process - soul-crushing and not reinforcing.
