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

    Pros

    Amazon is a great entry place for engineers. A mix of some ability and some drive will get an entrant into the full engineering exposure at a fast pace. Most of the direct software managers have engineering backgrounds mostly as experienced engineers at the company they don't just know about the technology but will have insight into relative teams too.

    Cons

    Management ability is completely random. Many do not have the training or ability to manage. The rise by force of will culture leads to a culture of it's everyone's responsibility who has a certain level of competence to do everything. Organization makes no sense in that way.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, some nice people, lots of change, mangement open to ideas.

    Cons

    Expectation is to work long hours, weekends and holidays. Starting salary is nice but yearly increases are extremely low. Some managers take the fact they work for Amazon.com as a green light to be rude and arrogent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on ways to reduce turnover.
