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

Pros

They take care of their employees with good benefits and often stock options. The Amazon motto of "Work hard, Have fun, Make history" are always displayed, and they make an effort to create a productive atmosphere that is both serious and lighthearted.

Cons

The large scale of this company can sometimes be daunting. The interview process was exhausting and tough. Be sure to follow up. It also can feel like they cycle through temporary workers quite often. So if you are full-time and the other associates around you keep changing, it can be a bit frustrating and disorienting.
