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

    Pros

    Very fast paced company, steep learning curve, opportunity to have your own baby projects if you are workaholic

    Cons

    Work-life balance is terrible, lot of expectations, lots of changing priorities, too many late hours with no extra pay

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your employees as human beings and not machines. Everyone works hard, and every single employee is very smart, so they deserve nice treatment, and a little less frugality.
