Overall, good experience.

Software Development Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

Pros* Very smart people across the board
* Endless opportunities to work on challenging problems
* Ability to work on many different types of products without changing companies (e.g. operations support, front-end, digital, web services, developer tools, etc.)
* Good stock performance (over past few years)

Cons* Location - South Lake Union (in Seattle) is hip and clean, but also expensive (e.g. lunches, parking, etc.)
* Hours - employees more often than not have to work above and beyond to meet senior management expectations (leads to bad work:life balance - i.e. not good for family life)
* Politics
