    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros, it was the worst job I have ever had.

    Cons

    This is the worst working environment I have ever been involved with. Verbal abuse is rampant and the politics and back stabbing is encourage by upper management. If this is the future of American companies, good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Your brainwashing attempts are amateur at best. Get a life.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People that know what they're doing. Lots of interesting projects floating around.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to get more done faster. Oncall shifts. Being pulled in different directions by different projects. Constantly having to trouble shoot systems you don't fully understand without time to learn it.

    Advice to Management

    They're a natural way developers communicate and work with each other when they're collaborating on a project. Don't break that up because someone gave you a deadline.
