    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.
