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

    Pros

    You will solve tough and interesting problems that, literally, no one has solved before.
    You will work harder than you ever have.
    You will learn a ton.

    Cons

    You will have to manage your work/life balance very carefully.
    They have no problem letting you get sucked in, at the expense of other parts of your life.
    Their "Insist on the Highest Standards" leadership principle often results in putting staff in tough spots.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You have a sense of personal accomplishment, the job is not difficult, there is good pay for the work done, and there are reasonable advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Monotonous work with customers who are often ignorant, irate, or both can leave you drained; you begin to feel as if you spend your whole life at Amazon or worrying about Amazon or buying things from Amazon.
