    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazon is a truly customer obsessed business where you get to work on problems of enormous scale. The projects you contribute to are almost always impactful. It's great to be part of this company.

    Cons

    As with any extremely successful company, there is pressure to not become complacent and allow your standards to slip. If you're looking for a laid back, cushy place to just float by, Amazon isn't for you.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
