    Pros

    Fast paced, creative, tons of upward mobility, opportunities to move to other departments, great benefits, very progressive company, incredible downtown Seattle offices

    Cons

    cut throat, 80+ hour work week, not much work-life balance, hiring usually happens after things are on fire so you do the job of several people at times

    Pros

    When you work at Amazon, you are given the opportunity to make impactful business decisions from day one. An autonomous environment, where intelligent individuals can learn to grow a business through experience.

    Cons

    If you don't want to work long hours, forget about working at Amazon. The opportunity is great, but you have to work hard to realize your career potential. It's not worth seeking employment here if you do not intend pushing yourself.
