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

    Smart people, good managers, very good customer focus which drives all business decisions and helps to innovate. Many good development tools which remove burden. However, since Amazon is big, this hugely varies between different departments and teams so be careful where you go.

    Cons

    Like in any big company, most technologies and tools are internal and make the experience hardly applicable anywhere else. Cheap and sluggish developer workstations (forget SSDs). Strict policies around personal projects even remotely competitive to Amazon business(es).

    Advice to Management

    At least one VP is so full of ego to the point it's ridiculous and obvious to everyone but him. Employees realize when they are treated poorly, even when words speak the opposite.

    Also, being such a science and data driven company, it's unfortunate that you ignore all the impact of open space sitting on the productivity.
