    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learn about web operations and customer centric organization.
    Teams are self-organized.

    Cons

    Imbalance between work vs salary and life.
    The technologies used internally are the same as those used everywhere else. There is no need to come to Amazon to learn them.
    None is free of operations and night and weekends on-call.
    People is usually exhausted after 1-2 years of overwork

    Pros

    Use your time wisely to gain experience using the growing range of AWS services to help you move onto another job.

    Cons

    Having to be a counselor on the phone when someone has failed to read the documentation, it may be simple but please don't fire your sys admin. Career progression within AWS limited if not based in Seattle or Cape Town or prepared to relocate.
