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

    Pros

    Good technology, large scale, a lot of technical problems to solve, you will learn a lot

    Cons

    A lot of politics, there is no great acknowledgement of achievements, you have to deliver at every single moment in your life to reach a happy situation, work life balance is really bad and it's really hard to estimate the tasks cost

    Advice to Management

    Work here is very stressful, we are required to perform a lot of duties that other companies don't ask for, If you show some respect to this and understand how stressful employee life is; then, I think you will take the right actions and provide the right employee judgement.
    Also, it's not wise to estimate a very low cost of a task that should take more than expected time.
