I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

Amazon took over ZFC and quickly forgot about the core values of the established employees and imposed theirs

Advice to Management

Not to forget about Zappos core values

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

    Pros

    Compensation, stocks, diverse learning environments.
    I've been at Amazon for more than 4 years now and can honestly say I've dealt with every possible scenario a TPM could deal with. My teams have always had smart, motivated individuals who are also team players.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, no work-life balance
    In the name of being frugal, the company tends to cut corners (read not hire more folks). Also career advancement is a hit or miss depending on how much your manager can swing for you, not based on what you were actually able to accomplish.

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

    Pros

    Mostly smart workers. Decent managers. Good salary.

    Cons

    some interns given projects that nobody really cares about or will use.
    to a minor level: the perks. personally, its not about the money saved from free lunch, but the nice gesture and message this sends about caring about your employees...look at Google/Facebook/Twitter...etc

    Advice to Management

    consider putting more time into compiling various projects to give to interns as options. I have seen that only a subset of the interns get this privilege, some are really screwed over and end up disliking their project which they really have to work on for over two months...
