Pros

People were really smart and talented. There was pretty much a limitless amount of work that computers/automation could improve. Lots of opportunities to be creative.

Cons

On-call rotation was horrible. It really depends on what team you're on. I was on one of the bad teams There is a weekly rotation for each member of the team, and I joined a team that had an average of a page every day (which could happen in the middle of the night, even weekends). But if you're on a team that's a new product or one without a strict SLA, you're OK.
People worked a little too hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

On-call rotation has caused good talent to leave.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook

    Hard labor, little help from managers in paths. Its all about numbers. managera do not care about employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazon hires people straight out of college, a lot of the managers have never actually had a job prior to working at amazon.

    Career opportunity is endless. You can go as far as you can push yourself to go. Great benefits. Amazon cares about their employees unlike most companies i've worked with.

    Cons

    Pay scale is based a little lower than most companies i've heard about with similar job types.
