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

Pros

The compensation is good, the working environment is excellent, and you are surrounded by motivated, intelligent people.

Cons

The commute can be a pain if you don't like in SLU. Long hours and extreme productivity are always expected but there is nothing wrong with that and part of the reason the company is so successful.

Advice to Management

There are dogs all over the campus. How about kids? On site day care would be a huge benefit to your employees.

    Pros

    Company is driven by metrics and making money but they will gobble employees up along the way.

    Cons

    They will tell you that you are doing a great job and 6 months later push you out before you are vested in your stock......beware, they are all very inexperienced merchants and do not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    look in the mirror, you could be next !

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

    Pros

    The biggest pro is that, there are so much things you can learn. You will never regret it. (Do internship here if you have an opportunity)
    Before I join Amazon, I did not know the company had one of the best technology to manage overall systems & environments.
    Very flexible work hours. I get to office by 10am or 11am.
    Good compensation, and stock options which is rallying every month.
    Good benefits, some employ discounts, free public rides in Seattle.
    Having Amazon on resume is definitely pro.
    Few years ago, environment for SDEs were pre-mature, but I think it is very stable nowadays, and you can take great benefits and speed up development process.

    Cons

    Hard work (but will give you a lot of opportunity to learn)
    Some level of frugality
