    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)


    Great people, very easy to progress if you live and breath the company's values and take opportunities. In my 8 years there I learned more and was exposed to more than I will in my next 16 I'm sure. It helped in skyrocketimg my career.


    Amazon is a fiercly aggresive and inhumane environment. The pressure is driven partly be customer demand and releasing new products and services for our customers. There is a manic approach to how we deliver the latter, often driven less by the customer experience and more by "just do it" philosophy and the management style highlighted in my first sentance. Some examples of this that made public awareness are the Amazon phine and the first Kindle outside the US (which was a disasterous thing!). If you don't have outside work commitments and want to grow quickly, it's great but not a place for people who have lives/families
