I worked at Amazon.com full-time

Pros

-Interesting work
-Smart co-workers to learn from
-Good pay
-Many web service tech to become familiar with

Cons

-Painful pager duty
-Prioritizes quick launches over stable products
-Workload can get high
-Minimal perks

I think the above is applicable to many large companies, but the pager duty is something specific with Amazon.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company name, casual though fast paced atmosphere, nice people. Having Amazon on your resume certainly is a plus, when you go looking for other work. And it is building for FCs across the country so opportunities to move up in the company come often.

    Cons

    Going through security, low pay, departments don't always work well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make hand-offs between day and nights more complete. Inbound and Outbound need to work better together.

    Pros

    Great place to move up if you work hard and make the right connections. Company highly values college degrees. Managers are usually fairly willing to help you in your career.

    Cons

    Starting pay is decent but not excellent, however you do get stocks fully vested at 2 years. Entry level pay caps out at $12.50, so if you plan on staying long you should definitely look into promoting. Hours can be long, and overtime is called often, but still an enjoyable place to work.
