    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Projects are interesting. You can get technical challenge with fellow software engineers. There're lots of smart people, here.

    Cons

    Work environment is not great. In the beginning, A shared desk was assigned to me without cube. A small war-room kind of office with 7 software engineers and there's no privacy while others kept complaining about smell of my coffee. I've never been in this kind of atmosphere. It might only be my team but quite discouraged to be creative.
    The benefit was even worse. In normal company, HMO is the cheapest plan but Amazon offers the most expensive HMO option and there's wierd plan of health fund. Health fund is okay for who doesn't go to see doctor more than 7 times per year but totally out of sense when you had family. Premium was already high but out of pocket cost for hospital is another story. 401k matching is very low and the company tries to get employee's patent idea for free while my previous company always paid for it. Parking reimbursement wasn't enough to drive your car to downtown. There's no ESPP. And so on..
    There's no formal training except new hire orientation which took only half day. No education support. It seems like this company only want to use your knowledge and has no interest to develop it.
    On call duty is also painful. You need to carry the pager and it might beep in the midnight and must respond it within 15 min or it'll be escalated to your manager, director, vp, ...

    Advice to Management

    You need to care your employees as human being.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses
    Lots of autonomy
    Opportunity for ownership
    Really smart people in business and tech
    Fast paced

    Cons

    Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven
    Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote.
    We need to streamline promoting from within.
