    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    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.
