    I have been working at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Has great people
    - Helpful coworkers
    - Has great location and food (South Lake Union)
    - Easy atmosphere with a playfulness not found at most corporations
    - Casual and unique culture
    - Cute dogs EVERYWHERE and friendly owners
    - Overall fantastic environment

    Cons

    - Still a big corporation
    - Management can be overwhelming at times, i.e. micromanaging
    - Seniority and position does hold power (as it should), but is sometimes abused
    - Hard for entry-level candidates to get in

    Advice to Management

    Give more chances to entry-level candidates! You do an excellent job growing them; why not grow them from the beginning?

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very organized work place, clean place to work. They have a process for everything. But they need to have tight control with 1000's of employees working.

    Cons

    Did not get any proper training for 3 months on position I was hired for. Instead, I was just a FIG "Fill in the Gap" to help boost the service / production numbers at facility I was assignd to.

    Advice to Management

    Need to recognize talent when they have a good hire.
