I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

Pros

Freedom to do things your own way; whether its the project at hand, your attire, when you come into work, you name it. Pretty flat hierarchy from what I can tell, but I was only there for three months and I have no idea if there is any bureaucracy higher up; I was able to attend and even contribute to a number of decisive meetings with the team.

Cons

Little bit stingy; lets just say that you don't get pampered like those at Google.
I've heard sentiments of programmers feeling like resources as opposed to assets.

    Be willing to accept a shift that is not conducive to much of a social life, however it is a good company to work for.
