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

    Pros

    - good experience in managing complex projects and having a lot of responsibility
    - people
    - exciting growth

    Cons

    - very difficult to develop career. company would rather hire externally than promote within
    - new hires are typically compensated more than tenured employees for the same job
    - company moves too quickly at times, considers all problems fire drills. only have time to put out the fire rather than solve the core root cause.
    - continued lowering of benefits and perks

    Advice to Management

    give your tenured employees the same opportunities as new hires.
