I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Executive focus and engagement in programs is very motivating (and scary for some). No place to hide for under-performers, and super smart and motivated people. Clear accountabilities.

Cons

Work-life can take a hit. Very limited training, and public image of company being a sweat shop is de-motivating. Feels like other companies also do amazing things, but somehow people work less there (not sure how).

    Cons

    - It is *too* frugal at times.

    Pros

    When you work at Amazon, you are given the opportunity to make impactful business decisions from day one. An autonomous environment, where intelligent individuals can learn to grow a business through experience.

    Cons

    If you don't want to work long hours, forget about working at Amazon. The opportunity is great, but you have to work hard to realize your career potential. It's not worth seeking employment here if you do not intend pushing yourself.
