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

Pros

If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
Less company politics than most companies

Cons

Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
Share door desks with others, no personal space
Don't do enough with community service

Advice to Management

Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes

    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 )
