    Pros

    - Excellent Developer Hardware - You get to learn A LOT - Everyone in the company is very welcoming and reachable - You get to challenge yourself everyday and are always learning new things

    Cons

    - The frugality leadership principle does mean less benefits for staff - economy flights, no free lunch, etc, which kind of sucks when compared to other tech giants.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons for working at Amazon would have to be the opportunities it allows for your career development. The sheer scale of locations and business units providing different products and services is like no where else. If you are someone who enjoys challenging yourself in different roles, and in new environments then you will thrive.

    Cons

    Relentlessly fast paced: which can put people off especially if they just are happy to stay doing whatever role it is they are doing when they changed. If you are someone who wants to do the same thing, day in day out, then you won't enjoy working at Amazon.

    I worked at Amazon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good facilities and system. Secure job for permanents.

    Cons

    Was part of the influx of casual employees, hired to work amazon prime. Post prime week it was a struggle to even get 10 hours rostered.

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

    Pros

    Above average pay. AWS Sydney has Transport allowance, we can claim Opal or Car parking charges. Phone bill allowance - you can take a phone and plan in contract and they pay for it upto certain amount. So you can get the latest Iphone, samsung , etc and they pay for it which is awesome.

    Cons

    Depends on the team you're on the flexibility to work from home etc depends. Also if your manager is newly hired from outside Amazon they tends to set some metrics which is not really necessary.

    Pros

    Everyone is empowered to do what they think is right for their customer. Amazon hires smart people and trusts them to do the right things. It's my favourite thing about working here :)

    Cons

    The work never stops so it's important that everyone sets their own boundaries and makes sure that they take back some time if they've been flexible with working early or late. Managers don't typically perform high levels of inspection so it's important that every individual manages this for themselves and asks for help when they need it.
