    Pros

    Work ethics
    Strong leadership principles
    Great pay
    Data driven and not driven by percentions
    Can move to any team and any domain within Amazon
    International exposure, can move internally to any country anywhere Amazon has an office

    Can be a bit hard to adjust in the begining and then becomes addictive and hard to leave :-)
    People are direct and on your face. I like it that way!
