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

Pros

Great benefits and beautiful Seattle views. The people who work at Amazon are among the best and very capable. Some of my best confidants have come from my coworkers. At Amazon I feel happy and like I'm making a difference.

Cons

There aren't very many cons when it comes to Amazon, but I suppose one possible con could include the fact that it's in the city, which personally I love but isn't some people's cup of tea.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how to develop software, and how to support it. Learn what it means to be customer focused.

    Cons

    You have two choices: Burn out with over-work, or play politics to save your skin. Promotions are based on favoritism in many cases.
    If you complain to HR about abuse from upper management, be sure they will rat on you and collude to destroy you. Leave before it gets to that.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees
