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

    Pros

    I have been at Amazon < 1yr but I can firmly say that the company invests so much in its people from day-one, and everyone at the company is extremely friendly, intelligent and on top of their game. Contrary to other reports that Amazon exhibits a poor work-life balance , so far I have seen a sincere effort to maintain a good work-life balance. Amazonians truly do live and breathe the 14 leadership principles in their day-to-day decisions. Finally, I would say Amazon is a place where you build a career not hold a "job".

    Cons

    The mac laptop that Solutions Architects get is too small, and my windows laptop could be a bit more feature-rich while still being frugal. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep fostering a culture in which the leadership principles are extremely pronounced in day-to-day decisions and in everything that we do - from the smallest to the biggest. Also, keep hiring the best!

    Get to know your team first to understand where the strong and weak areas are in your assigned department before implementing a change process.

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

    Pros

    I work for a new division of Amazon. Amazon has proven to be very flexible and helpful during the launch of our division. Work is fulfilling and benefits are excellent. The work environment is very welcoming and exciting, while remaining professional and work-oriented.

    Cons

    As is normal with a startup department, a lot of ambiguity at first. That has since improved.

    Advice to Management

    Focus just a bit more on employee development. My direct manager does a good job of that, but I've heard that various markets do not have that same attention.
