    "They say their small teams operate like startups... maybe like 1990s startups."

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

    Pros

    Small teams
    Smart senior people
    Market leader in products

    Cons

    Teams aren't integrated together
    Dated internal tools
    Slow
    Hypocritical values on some teams
    Managers drastically different operating styles, yet you have to stay a year before you're elligible for a transfer

    Advice to Management

    If you say you're agile, do agile, not a half assed inbetween of agile and waterfall. Focus more on building up your internal tools, instead of rushing code for deadlines, you say you don't sacrifice long term value for short term benefit, but sometimes I fail to see it.

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

    Pros

    Many; you can try new things; you'll learn new things about yourself and your limits.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not recognized as legitimate. We're making history which means you can find another job if that's what you want.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your internal talent evaluation. It's too subjective based mostly on the interview.
