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

    Pros

    Flexible, constant stream of new challenges, management genuinely respectful towards low-level associates, rewards hard work.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be better, on occasion progression opportunities depends on your manager's ability to sell you. Attrition can be high with management due to high-stakes/pressure culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to slowly change the intense culture of the past and adapt to the 21st century. you've already made a lot of progress on this but keep working.
