I have been working at Amazon.com as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The high standards expected of all employees ensure that if you ever choose to leave, you will never be stuck for further employment opportunities; Amazon wants you to be at your very best.
The ethos that Amazon promotes on a daily basis is an infectious one. The core Amazonian principles such as "Customer Obsession" are, in my opinion, easy to buy into and set the bar for other companies.

Cons

The flip-side of these high standards is that working at Amazon can be quite stressful, the job can be life-consuming. If you want to succeed at this company you have to be prepared to fully invest yourself.
The company, while it offers a competitive wage, needs to be more competitive in other regards to up the interest among potential employees. Other big names such as Google and Facebook promote a very appealing work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to smother employees with frugality. Leaving employees to pay for the single fussball table in a large office space starts making frugal look like a synonym for stingy.
