I worked at Amazon full-time

Pros

-Interesting work
-Smart co-workers to learn from
-Good pay
-Many web service tech to become familiar with

Cons

-Painful pager duty
-Prioritizes quick launches over stable products
-Workload can get high
-Minimal perks

I think the above is applicable to many large companies, but the pager duty is something specific with Amazon.
