    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You can learn many open source project and Linux on the job

    Cons

    As an engineer, responsibility is not communicated clearly from manager, lots of legacy technology and hard to grow in technical depth.

    Advice to Management

    They don't listen to advice.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Hardworking people committed to constantly innovating and reinventing, ability to create and monitor content, vast and immense experience working in a fast-paced environment that can turn on a dime.

    Cons

    Be prepared to give up work/life balance, as most jobs require 50 hour weeks absolute minimum. Willingness to be on call 24/7. Depending on your team, proper social form goes out the window; it's a sink-or-swim type of place.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the review process - soul-crushing and not reinforcing.
