Pros

Senior Management are always willing to listen to ideas. If it has any meat, you can approach senior leadership with a detailed analysis and it actually leads to actionable decisions.

Cons

Although not prevalent, politics can play spoilsport and lead to redundancy. Lots of man hours wasted by competing departments producing the same stuff.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Do good stuff and learn

    Cons

    Too much churn. General strategy is to keep doing all, and see what works.
    Very bad work life balance. Almost zero personal life.
    Poor accountability for senior management.
    Growth is poor. For same work hours, you can grow easily elsewhere. Hike are pitiable.
    Zero performance bonus culture. Zero stocks in most cycles (blaming the stock growth).
    Too many people quit because of health reasons, unable to cope up with unnecessary work pressures

    Advice to Management

    Fix the Cons above.
