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

Pros

Great work environment. The opportunities for career growth are numerous. Flexible work schedule. Inventors can invent, and most teams can spend time to drive quality into their products.

Cons

PAGER DUTY...BEWARE! Get a good sense of what type of situation your perspective team is in before entering (broken glass zones, etc).

    Pros

    Agile, challenging, learn something from new every day. Best job I ever had.

    Cons

    Beauracracy, but that's true for any big company. Career growth is highly dependent on what team you work for. Thankfully I work for the right team :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the bar the same or higher, our talent level is great.

    Pros

    None, maybe some interesting work, but you quickly realize "Quality is never a priority".

    Cons

    - I am yet to see a happy employee here.
    - Based on numbers I got a raise of 30%, but thanks to deceptive compensation techniques, I ended up with almost same pay.
    - Benefits suck.
    - If you dont live in Seattle downtown this is not a place for you, company doenst provide parking or for that matter coffee.
    - Its an "yes boss" culture, best people are the ones who are ready to work 80 hours a week. If you have a life too bad, it doesnt exist for many here.
