Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Not a lot of politics. A good environment for solving problems and building cool things. Great internal tools, both for deploying and building services and for data storage, etc.

Cons

For a tech company, there is a large business side. This means you spend more time than you'd want trying to convince and work with the business instead of just creating cool products.

    I worked at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns get to work on their own project. They make you feel like a full-time engineer and will give you a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Benefits are great, but not relative to other large companies such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.

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

    Pros

    Working from home. Equipment provided. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Management hard to reach at times. Very impersonal, having to give everything under the sun to everyone who called to complain.

    Advice to Management

    Be more available to your employees and don't push everything off onto your leads.
