I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart peers,
Good pay,
Freedom and ownership.
Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

Cons

Work-life balance
No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

Advice to Management

Think more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )
