Pros

+ Your work will likely be seen and used by millions + Fantastic company values that people actually care about + Great co-workers and transparent management

Cons

- Fairly stressful environment - Monthly on-call rotation

Advice to Management

Frugality shouldn't mean it's not the default to have the best tools for the job (dual monitors, newer computers) even if it's possible to get these things without too much trouble. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing!

    Pros

    Above average compensation, good benefits

    Cons

    Very hard to make a name for yourself if you are not in "The Boys Club". This generally means that you went to some prestegious college with an MBA or are ex-military. If you are not willing to work at least 60 hours a week and have Amazon be your #1 priority you are perceived as a slacker and lazy. There is definite favoritism by upper management. If you do not fit the mold do not expect to be promoted or last long with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in your managers. Give them constructive and positive feedback on how to get to the next level. Don't treat your manager as they are always replaceable. It stresses them out and causes them to look for a job elsewhere.
