    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Good for new starters in IT like Grads and Interns - Most of colleagues are nice but some can be extremely political and sabotage others to move forward - Free Fruits, Drinks and Nuts - First few months are pretty exciting learning new tech, but gets boring after a while - Heaven for newbies, if they can be good with managers and do hardwork, they can progress in their career pretty quick, sometimes even surpassing...

    Cons

    - Not industry standard remuneration, below average remuneration - Stock is heavily used to compensate the base salary, which in many cases just gets lost if you leave the company in first 2 years. Most of the stock are vested between year 2 and 4. - High pressure work environment and highly political work environment - Micro management to the max - Lots of new managers only focused in progressing their own career...

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more 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!!

    As the challenge it is huge it might be overwhelmed at the beginning but managers and co-workers are always helpful with you to deal with the pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
