I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazon has a high hiring bar with competitive compensation and bonuses, and therefore bright people you can learn a lot from about new cutting edge and large scale technologies.

Cons

Benefits are at ok level, and you can expect to be doing multiple types of activities during your tenure there - beginning with requirements definition, and finishing with operations support and being on pager duty.

Advice to Management

I wish the technical side of the company was more structured into Operations support, development, QA.

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

    Pros

    You're always going to have opportunities to grow within the company. You have a great way to gain experience through mentor-ships. Amazon has a very casual work environment.

    Cons

    Amazon is a very frugal company, therefore no free lunches daily. Restaurants around campus are somewhat expensive. No free Amazon Prime or Kindle Fires.

    Advice to Management

    Having a monthly appreciation party would be great! Though not really advice, you guys are awesome!
