    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Many different groups to work for (hardware, software, front end, back end) - Dive deep philosophy makes folks learn a lot - Metrics on everything means smart decisions are made - Leadership principles are a great way to have employees focus on the right things

    Cons

    - Some groups can be tough to work for (lots of overtime, unforgiving managers) - Frugality can be a bit overboard - Salary is capped - Amazon uses total compensation which include stocks

    I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, cared for employees, a lot of benefit and incentives.

    Cons

    Salary was low but, the benefit/incentives outweigh that.

    Advice to Management

    Management showed that they cared for their staff. They do step in to help and they worked even harder. I have no issues with what they got going on.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
