    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Software engineers are really empowered at Amazon, with a strong voice in determining the direction of their product/project. I am also fortunate to work with a wonderful group of people on my team. These factors, a great company culture and a great team, make Amazon a fabulous place to work for me.

    Cons

    It's a big company, and there is some red tape to hack through from time to time. Not a lot, but it is a factor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep tackling big problems.


  2. "Solid culture and pay"

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazon provides good pay and benefits, not to mention very profitable stock options. There is a surprising lack of office politics and red tape despite the size of the organization.

    Cons

    They forgo many of the office perks that other technology companies provide (food, generous work remote flexibility and PTO, equipment, travel perks, etc).

  3. "SDE Intern"
