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

Pros

Amazon is great company if you like the fast paced environment. Company tend to focus on what really matters and that is customer experience. People are solution oriented more than problem focused.

Cons

Employees don't necessarily get any perks (not even Prime), long hours are expected. The work/job satisfaction can vary dramatically based on the team you are in.

Advice to Management

Treat employee as your internal customers.

    Pros

    They legitimately want to remain number 1 in the industry. If job security is important to you, then you definitely want to work with people who have a clue. Their is a healthy paranoia around staying number 1 and targeting seemingly unachievable goals (but somehow always achieving them).

    Cons

    You will work hard. You will not be able to slack. Slackers don't last long. If you think you can "work less but work smarter", this is not the place for you. People here are both smart AND they work hard. That's not to say their isn't a work-life balance. It's just that slacking is not culturally acceptable or tolerated as it is in other companies. Want to "ride it out" to retirement? Again not the place. As long as you work here, you will work hard, but also contribute to great things.
