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

Pros

innovative culture, chill environment, chill dress code, company subsidized café with organic food, respectful co workers

Cons

unless you negotiate well going in, don't expect a further opportunity at end of year review unless you are an executive
not all managers provide a challenging environment
salary is low so stock is vital
benefits are great
Orca card
shuttles between buildings and to train station
great tools to do your work re IT
people are predominantly nice

Advice to Management

instead of signing bonus split over two years for the under $100K employees, make it one lump sum for one year

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

    Pros

    I feel very empowered, have great work-life balance, great unique culture, I am recognized for my contributions both financially and by the respect given by my leaders and peers. Amazon.com is a company that you can believe in and feel proud to be a part of.

    Cons

    I think that we need more creativity in our benefits. I think we could do a better job in employment branding.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the competition for great employees and continue to strive to have a strong employee value proposition.
