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

Pros

Amazon is always on the front end of technology. Lots of exciting things happening there across many different product lines. It's also easy to move around from team to team and position to position.

Cons

The company tends to overwork you! The company also considers 'frugality' a value - which translates into no perks. This is very disappointing and a drag on the culture.

    Pros

    Working with latest technologies. Team mates are smart, knowledgeable and always helpful. Learning a lot everyday. Can practice leadership skills.

    Cons

    Challenging work environment. Work life balance is not that great. On call pressure. Too much operational works. Less time for coding. Frugality is too much.

    Pros

    Good pay relative to other minimum wage and wharehouse jobs.

    Cons

    Terribly designed quota system. Physically exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know anyone who stayed longer than 3 months. Your turnover rate is astronomical. I would consider lightening the load on each individual.
