    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot working in Amazon. It's a great stepping stone for future career opportunities.

    Cons

    Amazon only matches 50% of your 401K contribution (up to 2.5% max if you contribute 5%). In some orgs, there is too much time spent on writing and revising a MBR doc. This disrupts productivity flow on projects.

    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.
