I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Rapidly-growing company that's willing to try new methods and ideas. They encourage creativity, individuality, and moving to different teams to learn new things. Fun, exciting industry. Stock options and employee discount.

Cons

Teams are frequently under-staffed for the workload. Management doesn't listen to employees. Tribal knowledge / lack of documentation are frustrating. "Do your own thing" means inconsistent standards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It isn't still "day one" - in some areas it's time to behave like a large, established company.

    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.
