    Current Contractor - Programmer Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, with lots going on in several country. Think for yourself and self-service attitude.

    Cons

    Help is not always at hand when you need it, due to the self-service attitude. Workforce spread over several countries can make meetings difficult.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    High hiring standards mean you will be surrounded with smart people. Easy to transfer to other jobs inside the company. Good stepping stone as a means to reach nerdvana ( Google, Facebook, Apple ).

    Cons

    Excessive overtime without compensation. Difficult to schedule vacations. Poor scheduling of projects. Favouritism. Below average pay. Benefit plan is average. Promotions are difficult to get and the pay raise is very low. Expected to perform at new job level for a full year before promotion will be considered. Two years at Amazon is considered a very long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An eye for an eye... in other words, make sure employees get just rewards for their efforts.
