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

    Pros

    Very smart development staff implementing academic computer science solutions to meet incredibly large scale of data and transactions.

    Cons

    Very intense environment requiring huge commitment without any room for work/life balance. Say goodbye to your family and any hobbies during your tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Stack ranking places peers in direct competition, limiting collaboration among individuals as well as teams. Managers hold absolute sway over their reports. Abandon stack ranking.
