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

    Pros

    - Mobility is encouraged, engineers can switch teams at very high frequency (I will not advice that though, as per me engineers should try a team or role for at least six months)
    - Deliveries and results are appreciated, executors can grow easily and just verbal claimers cannot survive here
    - Hands-on career tracks are deep, software engineers can grow all the way up to distinguished engineer e.g. James Gosling

    Cons

    - Engineers or Managers looking for a limited hour job may not get so. Work is at times demanding though work life balance is encouraged and possible.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure culture and principles for new hires, for Level 1 to Level 5 employees remains same as what it was 10-15 years ago.

    --> Management issues ( a little but still exists)
    --> scarcity of free snacks
    --> recreational room is good but can be improved a lot.

    Pros

    Excellent company is terms of growth and learning. Being a part of mid level leadership team, I know the efforts the company is putting to make the employees feel happy and satisfied with their job.

    Cons

    As is the case in all companies, there are few employees who will always spread negativity without knowing too much about the background. Better to not get demotivated as performance is everything in Amazon and in case of any issues, HR team is extremely strong and powerful.

    Advice to Management

    All good.
