    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.
