    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Amazon will give you great experience in prioritizing enormous workloads, understanding how to manage your manager's expectations, and making your own decisions. You get to work with a lot of extremely smart people and you will grow faster via diverse experiences here than you would at other companies. They also give you the opportunity to switch roles every year or two. I've been with the company several years now and have been through several different roles. The pros and cons span across my experiences.

    Cons

    Despite the "tech company atmosphere," the atmosphere is intense and stressful most of the year and it can easily overtake your life. For most roles, there are expectations that you be in your e-mail inbox around the clock and through the weekends. The work life balance is extremely poor. Because everyone has so much on their plates, it's difficult to get much of your manager's time for feedback or coaching. Most of my time is spent fighting fires and patching problems.

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

    Pros

    Low tolerance for bs
    Document-based meetings make sure people have thought things through
    Very smart leadership

    Cons

    Managers are too busy to coach, or manage
    Long, long hours
    Un-even promotion bar across departments, low promotion rate to Sr. Manager or higher - bar is a lot lower for external hires into higher level position than in-house promotion

    Advice to Management

    If you find someone good enough to rate at the highest level for three consecutive reviews, promote them or coach them, or they will leave and work for your competitor.
