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

Pros

- True agile development
- Great option as a first company. Work with some of smartest people you can find.
- No team hierarchy. Everyone is heard and their opinions are valued.

Cons

- Expectation to deliver in a small time frame leading to hacky solutions rather than long term maintainable solutions.

Advice to Management

Listen to the developers. They may not know about the monetizing part but they know what the customers want.

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

    Pros

    Lots of big challenges and smart people. It is fun and interesting to work on projects at Amazon scale. Working for a company where creating the best customer experience is paramount is great. The peers are high quality and the opportunity for self improvement is high.

    Cons

    Long hours and no work-life balance. Heavy competition and pressure to perform. Problems are sometimes masked and usually process is layered over root causes causing more stress. It's hard to get things done and that leads to varying levels of job satisfaction.
