I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good Signing Bonus, Decent Salaries

Cons

- No perks. No work life balance. Stack ranking is still used.
- If you are level 4 employee, you are considered fungible, meaning replaceable.
- Retail Systems is the worst, you will be often asked to trouble shoot systems which you have no idea about. Teams don't co-operate with each other.
- Tribal knowledge is rampant.
- Amazon won't do green card until you get a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating your employees as fungible entities.
