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

Pros

Great benefits and beautiful Seattle views. The people who work at Amazon are among the best and very capable. Some of my best confidants have come from my coworkers. At Amazon I feel happy and like I'm making a difference.

Cons

There aren't very many cons when it comes to Amazon, but I suppose one possible con could include the fact that it's in the city, which personally I love but isn't some people's cup of tea.
