Pros

I am very proud to have been a part of Amazon. It could be a frustrating place to work, but it was never boring. I have never felt so mentally stimulated.

Cons

Be prepared to work hard. Jeff Bezos is amazing but he has no concerns for you individually. That didn't bother me at all, but you have to know that going in.

Advice to Management

When I worked there many frustrated me, and I would have passed them on to senior management. Now, however, looking back on what they have achieved, I wouldn't suggest they change anything.

    Pros

    I'll never complain about the advancement opportunities at Amazon. I was able to move around quite a bit in the company which kept the boredom off

    Cons

    phone shifts were long and dealing with the elderly callers who didn't understand how to use their computer, let alone order online kept those calls going and annoying.

    Advice to Management

    I have none. I was given many opportunities that i was very happy with. I really can't complain about it.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work on real-world scaling problems. Lots of new project initiatives, and still some good challenges in migrating from legacy systems.

    Cons

    On-call rotation for almost all engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Process is good, but don't make it and end in itself.
