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

    Pros

    -The compensation is pretty good overall
    -Offices have ping pong tables
    -Fully paid bus pass is pretty nice to have

    Cons

    -No time provided to deal with ops issues, though still expected to as they pile up
    -Cheap in the name of frugality, dev boxes are hardly sufficient
    -Projects hardly given real (and never realistic) schedules, and when you don't complete something which you were never given time to you get reprimanded
    -Managers with out people skills can really drain the life out of you

    Advice to Management

    This growth is not sustainable. You should look to improving quality of life for the employees, because a lot of them aren't sticking around.
