Pros

amazon is a growing company with many interesting problems. the complexity and scaling of the business bring a lot of challenges.

Cons

pay-wise is ok but not great. one leadership principle of the company is frugal, so do not expect great packages and benefits

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

    Pros

    I am impressed by what I have seen in Amazon so far. it is very efficient and well managed. The sense of ownership and customer focus is so strong that you can feel it from employees in all levels. You have opportunity to work with bunch of smart people. People here are kind and willing to offer help as long as you ask.

    Cons

    The ramp up curve is big. It usually takes about few months to understand Amazon technology and culture. No formal training program.

    Advice to Management

    It is a challenge to grow so fast but still keep the original culture. Middle layer management team is the key.
