    Pros

    You learn new technologies and are challenged every day. You need to be at your best every day. There are many brilliant colleagues which keep environment motivated and challenging,

    Cons

    Once you join, there is very very limited scope of growth (compensation wise and career wise both). So if you do not negotiate well at the time of joining then you might repent afterwards.
    Since there are very few levels so promotion takes 6-12+ years from Mid to senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Create more fun at work environment and create more opportunities of growth.

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

    Pros

    Pros:
    + Like others have said, you are really encouraged to act as a business owner.
    + Work is fast paced and can be a grind, but there is never a dull moment.
    + Strong commitment to the Leadership Principles.
    + Commitment to the long term goals of the company vs. parity with retail competitors.
    + Employees are rewarded for their work and compensated appropriately.
    + Beautiful campus

    Cons

    Cons:
    - Can be a grind - long hours are the rule, not the exception. Work life balance is heavily weighted to work.
    - Management and management expectations varies greatly from business unit to business unit.
    - Typical red-flags within a company (like high turnover) are not investigated.
    - Culture is very male-centric. Women need to have thick skin and be willing to speak up and be heard.
