      I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Amazon is also a great company that expands its business incredibly (Alexa, delivery, Amazon fresh, Amazon payment etc.) and there are many working opportunities with them now and for the following years.

      Cons

      The company recently focuses more on developing mechanism something that is based on automation, online and self-services that provides less opportunity to engage with clients / customers directly. In addition, there are much time required to collect and analyze data and write word documents for business reviews especially if you are a manager.
