    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company to learn. It's a very fast paced organization with great growth opportunities. People are genuinely smart. Innovation everywhere and truly cares about the customer. Pay is great and very generous stock grants.

    Cons

    With the explosive growth Amazon has seen, they have promoted too many people who are smart and great individual contributors into management roles. Most managers don't actually know how to lead. Unfortunately, this will continue to get worse as Amazon expands into new areas. Starting at the top, senior managers lead by being dicks.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.
