    "AWS: Great place to work, but not for everybody"

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

    Pros

    1. Exposure to cutting edge technology
    2. Experimenting is encouraged
    3. Flexible schedule (work from home) - except when on business trips

    Cons

    For the most part, you do not get specific assignments - it is up to you to find your specialization, technical challenges to work on, solutions that will benefit customers - in short, you have to be a self-starter! If you like a more structured environment when your manager decides what you do and sets the goals - Amazon AWS is not for you. We also do about 20% of travel - if you cannot accommodate travel, position at Amazon AWS might not be for you.

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chance for work at an incredible company
    A very friendly, accepting, and educational environment

    Cons

    Temporary positions with no promise of a future
    Hiring agencies are likely to try to underpay you as much as possible

    Advice to Management

    In the case of a temporary role. Please structure the experience and responsibilities so that there is at least a base to work with.
    I developed my work into something challenging that was mutually beneficial but I saw many in the same program do little to nothing by no fault of their own.
