I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

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

Advice to Management

Recognize employee talent and accomplishments more.
