    Pros

    You work with the best and brightest employees at all levels. People are ambitious and are always thinking ahead of the curve. Being innovative but for the right reasons is how things progress and working in a collaborative an inclusive environment make it fun!

    Cons

    Doing more with less is a challenge and with little direction. It's not the perfect place for everyone unless you like the challenge.

    Pros

    Highly intelligent coworkers, the Amazon Way of communicating and strategy, interesting projects and people who have passion for their work, animals, and their coworkers

    Continue to grow leaders and managers to focus on the people. Resources are always lacking, and knowing the teams challenges and reiterating back is helpful.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a LOT! You will get an MBA in the Cloud technologies. You will work with great people who were selected on their merit and knowledge. There's always someone to learn from.

    Cons

    After the first 2 to 3 years your salary takes a hit and you will start looking to move on to another company. Amazon, for some strange reason, doesn't seem to care much about retaining professionals after that time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Make data-driven decisions (which most of you do).
