I have been working at Amazon full-time

On call duty can be very heavy depends on which team you are in. Totally lose your personal life if you are on call.

    "Be prepared to go the distance"

    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.
