I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

Pros

Lots of possibilities to move around, lots of friendly and smart people to work with. Lots of great products and innovation going on. Innovation is encouraged.

Cons

The hiring process has brought in too many engineers that just know java. Not much uniqueness, just people who can code interview questions. Ltos of operations, handled by engineers oncall, which eats into coding time. Web developers are often seen as second class to "software engineers" even though it is a different type of job, different skill set. Its near impossible to move levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create 20 levels, so its more rewarding and easier to achieve. The more people see people achieving levels, the more they are going to see the possibilities of doing this themselves.

    Pros

    Clean Environment, Fair in Employee Dealings, Opportunity for advancement. Clean Lunch Rooms. Interesting in seeing vast number of products stored and processed.

    Cons

    Very hard work and difficult to keep up their required pace. And if you don't, you're out of there. Also, Night shift and be very challenging. It's a pain to go through Security for breaks, lunches and just reporting to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis on Safety of employees.
