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

Pros

The core values of Ownership, Integrity, Bias for Action, Frugality etc., are all things that I personally approve of and have known to work best for me. The culture of the company fits me very well. In my 7 years, I have not worked on anything that was not of any use to anyone. Essentially, no work/time of mine was spent for nothing. Managers and senior managers are invariably always demanding, challenging and make you do more than what you would have done if left alone. To slightly lazy people like me, that is really helpful. People above my level are invariably role-models. They have amazing process, excellent communication and influencing skills. Very structured thought-process and always focused on the customers.

Cons

For the work one does here, the money one gets is very low.

    You get to learn lots of technologies very quickly. Very fast release cycles. Fast paced culture.

    Individual growth is very limited. It mostly depends on your managers. Very stressful and work-life balance is not good.
