Pros

Working with latest technologies. Team mates are smart, knowledgeable and always helpful. Learning a lot everyday. Can practice leadership skills.

Cons

Challenging work environment. Work life balance is not that great. On call pressure. Too much operational works. Less time for coding. Frugality is too much.

    Pros

    -You will learn a ton
    -You will have a LOT of responsibility; really gives you a chance to prove yourself
    -Get to work with brilliant people at a truly history-making company
    -Great pay

    Cons

    -Incredibly tough environment. On my team (which albeit was slightly unusual being SO new) we all worked like dogs and got absolutely no thanks for it.
    -You are on your own. There is very rarely any support.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within. It never ceases to amaze me that a company with so many brilliant minds rarely ever promotes its own employees. It was very common for people to quit, work elsewhere, then return at a hire position rather than simply receive a promotion.

    Pros

    Good pay relative to other minimum wage and wharehouse jobs.

    Cons

    Terribly designed quota system. Physically exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know anyone who stayed longer than 3 months. Your turnover rate is astronomical. I would consider lightening the load on each individual.
