    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Like being in a startup that is stable and amazing: you have total ownership of your services, you are running fast, lots of smart people around you, you solve tough problems every hour, most of which have never been solved, you focus on customers more than anything else and you go home feeling your personal contribution actually helped those customers value your company better.

    Cons

    Some teams might be better than other for one's own taste and preferences (work-life balance, direct customer contact, engineering led vs. PM led etc.). It is easy to transfer once in the company, so to be frank you just need to pick the team that fits your criteria, apply and get accepted.
