    I have been working at Amazon

    Pros

    The scale and breadth of the work is energizing, and I am free to solve problems in just about any way I like. The people are also generally charged, smart and inspiring making it fun to meet and work with most everyone.

    Cons

    Projects are often under resourced and overly ambitious, creating an frenetic unfocused environment that can sometimes be hard to get simple things done. The frugal mindset is sometimes just cheap, which can cost more in the long run. It's okay to spend money when it ends up being well amortized.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.
