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

Pros

Good environment. Good culture. Comp pretty good. Narrative process is good and helps make things transparent. Business is extremely strong. Exciting and lots of upside and opportunity. Exec Mgmt is good team.

Cons

No work life balance. They work you very hard. i have been working 20+ years at major tech companies and this is the most hours i have ever worked - BY FAR. Employees care more about doing a half baked job and doing it themselves, versus working cross team. Two teams will be doing the same thing on same project because they want to take "ownership". No teamwork mentality. no free cokes - really??

Advice to Management

Focus more on team work and less on individual accomplishment. Also fix the comp system so that you aren't a drone with a specific number.

    Very high level of talent; fast-paced; performance evaluations are based on real data available in real time; still a young company with high growth and lots of opportunity; good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a challenge; high turnover at every level; beginning to get less entrepreneurial and more bureaucratic/political

    Guard against unnecessary bureaucracy as the company continues to scale
