    Pros

    When you join Amazon you join an hectic environment where everything is faster that all I knew in my career however you can get what you want when you are engaged and you deliver a lot. You learn so many great things, you work on an international level and you can move from one great job to another in less than 2 years. You can also lead an international career and nothing is impossible. However for these great achievement you have to deliver, no pain no gain but at the end of the day this company is great and unique!

    Cons

    You have to set your personal limits and find with the support of your manager the right balance between your professional objectives and your personal life. With a great manager (and there are a lot of them within Amazon) you can have more flexibility and freedom than other companies.

    Pros

    What I love about working at Amazon is that you get to be surrounded by brilliant, hard working AND kindly people. It's extremely rare to find a company where one's opinion and ideas (always based on data) are listened to and even valued. Nowhere else have I felt I could have such an impact on my company and customers (internal and external). It's a thrilling and exciting company to work for.

    Cons

    Sometimes evolution is based more on communicating well than actually working hard and not all avenues are made available or known.
