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

    Pros

    Work with really talented people, work on very interesting and challenging projects, learn how a very fast moving organization works. Lots of decentralization and autonomy gives great flexibility. Can work offsite and on the move easily. Great support and work atmosphere between peers.

    Cons

    Management is immature and not people oriented - lots of talk about it but not in practice
    HR goal is to minimize damage and keep management safe
    Two track evaluation process with no relationship required between the two tracks
    Very decentralized and lots of practically autonomous teams can also result in chaos

    Advice to Management

    Work on treating people better. Implement time off for extra effort - people work really hard and really long hours for the company - give them some time off when needed in return. Re-examine how the review process is implemented and remove abuses of the system.
