      I have been working at Amazon

      Pros

      Amazon has very talented people and open work environment. It's a great place to understand how web companies operate from ground up.

      Cons

      Amazon is too frugal and company benefits are nothing compared to other employers in the area. Depending on the group pager duty can be atrocious.

      Advice to Management

      Leadership should keep doing the great job they are doing. They should be more open to contributing the open source.
