    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Colleagues - most are very smart and extremely driven
    - type of work - new grads can be put on big projects very quickly
    - competitive base salary
    - metrics driven - I've seen Senior financial analysts successfully contest comments from directors using metrics

    Cons

    - no surprise, long hours
    - very "pressure cooker" type of environment, can get tiring very quickly
    - colleagues are not always the friendliest
    - benefits compared to other tech companies is sub par

    Advice to Management

    Improve work/life balance and benefits - long hours with low benefits is never a good formula
