I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Pay I thought was above average
hours - was perfect 4 -10 hr shifts

Cons

Lack of communication between managers

Advice to Management

Communicated with managers before so everyone is not telling employees to do different things.

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

    Pros

    * Engineers are valued. A lot of focus on giving Engineers the work that is challenging.
    * Good technological challenges. A lot of interesting problems in the AWS space which are challenging and need creativity.
    * High impact work. A lot of customers use AWS, and hence the impact is visible in terms of usage, growth, customer feedback.

    Cons

    * Design is owned by Principal Engineers. Sometimes it is hard to get the opportunity to design a system as it is owned by Principal Engineers.
    * Oncall duty can be bad on some teams. But it is ok for some teams.

    Advice to Management

    * Focus on operational pain reduction as much as new features..

    "Not a great place to work as Full-time perm"

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    lots of money and good benefits

    Cons

    no time to live your life. The hours will kill any family life you want. They hire you and you have a brief honeymoon period of about 1 month but after 2 months the honeymoon is over. Be prepared to work your butt off and if you can't then be ready to work somewhere else. Oh and the signing bonus they will want that back if you didn't last a year at amazon. I feel sorry for all the college students getting out of college and working for amazon. Amazon is using and abusing you. Believe it.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the CEO
