    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Workplace that necessitates and rewards continuous learning, exploring and thinking out of the box
    * Great Compensation compared to industry standards
    * Opprotunity to move to any team in anywhere in the world (of course where Amazon has a presence)

    Cons

    * Sometimes you may have to stretch a lot to meet deadlines
    * Oncalls and production support may be hectic in some teams but the good thing is senior leaders are very serious about reducing operational load for tech teams

    Advice to Management

    Nothing specific to tech roles. They're already very responsive and have built many tools for understanding employee sentiments. Keep up the great work!
