I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great leadership that sets the tone right with long term strategic bets. You have the platform made available to lead from the front on things you want to change. Lots of opportunity to work on high impact problems.

Cons

The design org is a bit geriatric and the leveling system for career progress is still very flimsy. There is a clearly evident glass ceiling that will easily put off ambitious young designers with keen abilities in a few years. You are expected to put in a "fair" time before you can move up the ladder.

    -Direct culture can be jarring at first
