    I worked at Amazon

    Pros

    Assuming you pick your group properly: Great co-workers, fun projects, great products and managment that actually listens.

    Cons

    Benefits package is below average. The high hiring bar isn't applied evenly to all teams leading to some teams that are way below par.

    Advice to Management

    Look for groups that are lowering the bar. When a manager lowers the bar hold them responsible!
