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

    Pros

    The other employees are great to work with and a few of the managers actually do care.
    They always need help so overtime is no problem.

    Cons

    Low pay for the area.
    The managers only see what they want to see.
    There's no follow through with anything.
    No actions are taken on people who don't follow the rules.
    Carbon copy yearly review process.
    Unless you're a "popular kid" with the managers than you're going no where in the company.
    The managers don't care what you have to say unless your nose is brown.
    The office area is like a playground; they're always throwing stuff at each other and playing games.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your offices and watch how hard some of your employeess work. Stop judging the employees as a whole and realize that we are individuals. Stop catering to your "favorite" employees.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is cool. Good joining bonus and stock options (but it is distributed over a substantial period of time as part of emp retention). Great learning about various latest technologies, scalability factors, immediate impact etc.

    Cons

    Bad employee satisfaction. No one cares about emp workspace / perks (like shuttle / food / sports memberships etc).
