    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great co-workers with amazing backgrounds - Ability to move functions/countries/industries with in the company - competitive pay - fast paced environment - visionary leadership (most of the times)

    Cons

    - difficult to get promotion - not much of pay hike for loyal employees, people joining fresh out of school with same degree are earning higher than people in the company for a long term

    Advice to Management

    - give every one face time in your team - share what your thought process behind any big or small decisions that gives an opportunity to young minds to learn from you

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
