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

    Pros

    Great on-boarding! Amazon insists that all new staff "learn to walk before they [are allowed to] run." Lot's of training in the unique Amazon ways.

    Support from management -- locally and globally -- is terrific. They are as invested in your success as you are, which is really refreshing.

    Cons

    The unique recruitment process can be very long (4-12 weeks, or longer). A "necessary evil" to screen and recruit the best and brightness but potentially agonising for some candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!
