I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Smart, highly motivated team, initiatives that have direct customer impact, high visibility in the organization. Own your product end-to-end from conception to implementation to delivery to maintenance.

Cons

Very aggressive goals, no work life balance. Boss works harder than me because boss has more agressive goals. Company expects to work hard, work smart and work long hours. All teams own online services and you are never off work if you are the manager. Need to invest in a support org for live issues that pop up in the middle of the night.

    A lot of work, but satisfying for those who enjoy it.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great cardio workout if you're on the floor. people have been fun and enjoyable for the most part. If you get a blue badge the opportunities are seemingly endless.

    Cons

    Hours during peak season can be a bit much, I hardly saw my family over the holiday season last year. I've heard a lot of things that are said will happen to better the working experience but are nowhere in sight.

    Pros

    The company culture is based on objectivity, responsibility, and precision. This means there is little to no "politics" or egos to stroke. Great for people who like to work fast and hard and not waste time. No classism or age-ism like you sometimes see in young hot tech companies.

    Cons

    Frugal company culture means perks are minimal, tools can be subpar, managers can be spread extremely thin and work environment can be unnecessarily challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Considering the hurdles to getting hired here, there should be more of a focus on retention and promotion of internal talent.
