    I have been working at Amazon for less than a year

    Pros

    amazing environment, large & cutting edge.

    Cons

    too large @ times so there is no correspondence among teams world wide before strategies are implemented.

    Plan farther ahead before hiring/firing staff (lots of work but no structure)
