    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Great people working in Amazon, some of the brightest minds and personalities out there.
    Challenging and sometimes fun work in an extremely fast-paced environment.
    Great work/life balance if you set that boundary for yourself.
    There are great golden handcuffs with the RSUs when you start.

    Cons

    Challenging work in an extremely fast-paced environment, it's not uncommon for the goal of your project to change just before you hit the finish line, but that's part of what makes this a great company to work for (and that's the case at most other companies I've worked at as well to be fair).
    The annual compensation increase is deplorably pitiful, especially when compared to the process you're required to go through for the end of year review. There is no year -end/holiday bonus, and the employee discount is a bit of a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation levels for annual reviews need to be tripled to cover cost of living increases.

    Cons

    your metrics depend on customer rating, which does not reflect the quality of your work. Customer are not generally happy when they open a case because it means there is an issue. So most of them don’t give any ratings, and some of them give a bad one because they are angry with the issue they are having and not the quality of your correspondence.

    Advice to Management

    Employee’s performance should not depend on customer’s ratings because they are random
