    Pros

    People - all smart, focused and data driven. Mission - shared vision, play for the long term, make big bets, make choices, own them Values - Creates incredible workforce with broad reaching influence In general, this is one of the few companies with the will and footprint capable of disrupting most industries it chooses. The ruthless focus on the end consumer allows for clear thinking and brutal feature cuts.

    Cons

    Expect to be on your email from 9-Midnight - while not a 'requirement', the turn around time on expected questions from mgmt is consistent with all-the-time access. Willing to burn bridges with nearly any industry or partner in the name of better customer. This may not be a 'con' per se, but if you're in the partnership side of the business, know your personal brand may be affected.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. I'm still a shareholder and will continue to be one.

    Pros

    I noticed that people at Amazon have either stayed for a really long time or just in there 1-2 years of career. From more senior colleagues, you can definitely learn A LOT if you are doing an internship or fresh out of college. Amazon has their own system for almost everything you need to build software, but you really need to think BIG because everything needs to be scalable (especially if you are on Retail or AWS).

    Cons

    Perks are limited (as you all know), money doesn't buy you happiness. It might take a while to get used to people moving around, switching teams all the time.
