    Amazon can be a great place to work depending on how you want to job to be and where you want to go with your career. There are lots of great opportunities but the job is frequently rough.

    - company is currently heading a great direction

    Cons

    - some teams have LOTS of legacy baggage
    - resistance to change
    - huge amounts of time spent on operations
    - you should know you'll be carrying a pager around

    Advice to Management

    They're In a tough spot. A little too tactical i.e. micromanaging sometimes. Management might want to step back a little bit and put some trust in engineers.
