Advice to Management
Honestly I love working for Amazon (AWS) and really look forward to coming to work everyday. Management is awesome, caring, and really wants you to succeed and advance your career. All levels of Management make themselves available to chat with you. Amazon also provides any tool, training and study materials that you could possibly want. I work with some of the smartest and talented individuals I have ever met.
I have two cons about Amazon. (1) I didn't apply here earlier in my career. (2) I wish I applied here sooner.

I work at Amazon Web Services, not necessarily Amazon.com. The workplace is much more relaxed and easy-going than what you've heard about Amazon in general. We are not micro-managed, and the employees have the freedom to govern themselves in certain instances. Good benefits and great job security.
Haven't been here long enough to really get any downsides. I guess vacation/time-off could be better. Maxes out at 2 weeks for newbies and 3-weeks if you've been there a year or two.
Advice to Management
Create a more fluid on-boarding process, and take more time to show new hires what they need to expect from their new peers. Create a good training plan that is not so chaotic at times.

Smart people who take ownership. Managers who don't get in the way and are above average. In general, you'll learn quite a bit.
Growing so fast has it's challenges, it can seem somewhat wild, wild west at times. Dealing with and learning the Amazon specific infrastructure can be daunting and feel somewhat tedious. It's still mostly a Java shop.

Amazon is one of the few companies in the United States where a software development engineer can create products (e.g., EC2, S3, EBS) that customers are rapidly adopting all over the world. And you can be sure that the engineers you'll be working with will be very talented and productive too.
No major cons at Amazon.
