I worked at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Ping Pong tables, smart coworkers, Seattle is beautiful in the summer.

Cons

I heard Seattle is not as great during the other seasons. Depending on what team you're on, the work can be a little boring, as well as the people.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Amazon provides competitive pay and you're surrounded by intelligent people. Even if you're not always interested in the space you're working in the problems are still quite interesting, many times simply because of the scale. Amazon also has a strong mentor program which is a great way to expand connection and skills.

    Cons

    Employment contract prohibits you from doing ANYTHING entrepreneurial. If you have your own ideas and want to work on them (even in your time outside of work), don't work at Amazon. You cannot work on anything related to ANY of Amazon's subsidiaries, which are vast.
