Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fun and challenging problems every day.
I get to work alongside and learn from some of the smartest people I know.
There are so many ways to have a big impact on millions of people.
A chance to participate in history.

Cons

Its really challenging to keep a good work life balance here, and that seems to be by design.
It's a bit of a chaotic environment and isn't always the easiest place to get things done.
