    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cloud computing is game changing technology to the computer industry. AWS is the undisputed leader in the space. AWS leaders have been able to drive innovations at a very fast pace, adding new features all the time, and reducing price all the time! It is quite cool to work on exciting technology and see the results impacting the world...and at high speed.

    Cons

    Well, employees are not what Amazon cares about. Period!

    There are too many things to list here when you compare with other technology companies: lower than industry package, very slow/hard promotion process, many bad managers who care little about employees (the only way to be a "good" manager there), very stressful work environment, work-life balance is non-existence... Employee turn-over is very very high. Very few employees stay more than four years. On top of that, the hiring bar is extremely high. No wonder there are never enough people to do the increasing amount of work.

    Two things are particularly stupid:
    - Your review pay increase is limited by your previous stock grants! If you have many previous stock grants, either from your sign-on bonus or previous review grants, during employee performance review you could get _zero_ increase even if you did an excellent job that year. The company thinks you are compensated enough! It seems they are afraid of employees making too much and ensure that won't happen.

    - If you are an entry level engineer who need a greencard sponsor, stop join Amazon. The company won't sponsor low level employees until they are promoted to next level. PhD does not matter! That is 3 to 4 years delay in the greencard process. That is a huge deal for foreign origin employees. Many new engineers just left once they found out that.

    Advice to Management

    Next time you plan to lower AWS feature prices, consider holding back 10% for your hard working employees. Maybe then you don't have such high employee attrition. Treat employees like human, not tools for business.
