    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot.
    There are some great people here.
    South Lake Union is lovely.

    Cons

    You will be thrown under the bus.
    Amazon is notoriously cheap.
    There is no work/life balance.
    Appreciation is rare.
    Too many Microsofties are creeping into the company.
    Amazon's innovative culture combined with Microsofties who punish innovation creates a strangely schizophrenic environment.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter; you won't listen.
