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

Pros

It's a great place to learn, grow, innovate, create, and make history. You have an amazing opportunity to do some amazing things here.

Cons

Work-life balance could be better. They still joke about "owning" you after you become a blue-badge. Working OT is expected and basically a "norm" to survive the pace. Typical work week can be 50+ hours if there is a lot of deadlines to meet.

Advice to Management

Communicate better about organization wide changes and business direction.

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

    Pros

    -decent pay & signon bonus.
    -Big company, talent teammates.

    Cons

    -unrealistic project schedule, but manager don't think so, they think devs can solve all the problems in a short time. Managers don't care about devs.
    -teammates are very aggressive.
    -oncall is horrible. you're paid as SDE but you're also doing the job as SDET and support engineer

    Advice to Management

    Slow down a little bit and do a better schedule, if you're not coding, please take some time to rethink if some features are realistic for the devs. Try to be nice to non-native speakers, we're human not machines.

    Cons

    Relocation mandatory, a lot of corporate platitudes, middle management turnover was alarming

    Advice to Management

    Investigate ways to either better retain middle management team or more effectively handle turnover.
