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

Pros

Team oriented atmosphere, fast paced environment, a lot of room to make independent decisions

Cons

Too much time spend on "thinking big" that minute details are often an after thought.

Advice to Management

Develop from within. Bringing outsiders in damages both morale and culture. While it might be nececessary, do only as a last resort.

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

    Pros

    Working with some of the smartest people in the industry.
    You can make a significant impact much like a startup.
    Excellent benefits, parking reimbursement etc.

    Cons

    We seem to be doubling our workforce every year which means half the company is new to the company (no exaggeration). The culture of "bias for action" is lost in some groups. People are more worried about CYA than building the product right in a timely fashion.

    No work/life balance, overload of new hires needing to be mentored at the same time as needing to meet aggressive deadlines is very stressful and is currently causing some churn in the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose your way. There seems to be some loss in corporate culture over the last few years. Don't let entropy creep in.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, management was very understanding and helped you accomplish your goals. It is a very competitive atmosphere and the strong competitors will rise to the top and begin moving upwards. College graduates have mobility.

    Cons

    Constant work and tight schedules. You are only allotted two 15 minute paid breaks and one 30 minute unpaid break. Typical warehouse work for those who are suited to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a little more personal leave to employees, not necessarily during high volume hours, but more available time to request off during down times and low peak days.
