    No opinion of CEO

    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.
