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

    Pros

    Your coworkers are generally motivated, capable people. Compensation is reasonable, given cost-of-living in the Seattle area. Lots of good places to eat in South Lake Union.

    Cons

    Emphasis on quantity over quality, in spite of the Amazon Leadership Principles. Engineers are second-class citizens in some divisions where business people rule the roost. Long hours. Lots of internal bureaucracy. Strong case of NIH syndrome. High employee turnover. No company shuttles to the Eastside (Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, ...).

    Advice to Management

    Empower engineers to do their jobs well. Do a better job at creating requirements and strategies and sticking to them.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can get medical coverage in 30 days. its high deductible but amazon pays 100 percent for you. great pay and overnight gets even more. no experience needed. Quick hire on and great training. they are very safety oriented and have on site medical care if you need something or don't feel well during your shift.

    Cons

    This job is very physically intensive. The shifts are 10 hours long and 12 hours during peak (November to December) holiday. even with these long shift times you only get 30 mins for lunch and two 15 minute breaks. the break times start when you finish your last task till you start your next so you only really get 7-10 mins for your breaks depending on how long it takes you to get to the break room.

    Advice to Management

    longer lunches and let us sit down if a department has a shut down.
