    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent job satisfaction (coming from customer focus)
    Very laid back dress code & atmosphere
    Can bring my dog to work.
    reimburse for parking
    Lots of extremely smart people all around me
    highering bar is very high which means people who make it in are

    Cons

    Can get hectic at times - meaning some weeks are difficult and long.
    Some people who don't set boundaries can burn out fast
    Turn over can be pretty high - usually due to moving on and up to better positions, but sometimes due to burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware and take steps to combat burn out so the people who are raising the bar are able to continue working at the company.
    Keep doing everything else just as well as it is.

    Current Employee - Recruiter in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Has great people
    - Helpful coworkers
    - Has great location and food (South Lake Union)
    - Easy atmosphere with a playfulness not found at most corporations
    - Casual and unique culture
    - Cute dogs EVERYWHERE and friendly owners
    - Overall fantastic environment

    Cons

    - Still a big corporation
    - Management can be overwhelming at times, i.e. micromanaging
    - Seniority and position does hold power (as it should), but is sometimes abused
    - Hard for entry-level candidates to get in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more chances to entry-level candidates! You do an excellent job growing them; why not grow them from the beginning?
