Wok nights and weekends. There is always something which is urgent. If you are not aggressive, you performance will take a hit

Hire for appropriate wokload

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

    Pros

    Learn a lot fast. You have to go the extra mile in every project and that helps you see and learn new aspects of a project every day.

    Cons

    Management is very political and at times blindsided to employees that have good judgement. Moving up in the ladder is not that easy, and at times it could be impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and celebrate everyone equally, not just your favorites.
