    I have been working at Amazon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of working at AWS is being surrounded by extremely knowledgeable and skilled colleagues. Each person brings something different and it's a great feeling to know I can learn something from everyone around me.

    The work itself is exciting and interesting, helping customers define the best architecture for their requirements and adopting best practices.
    It's very gratifying to see the benefits that customers get from our interactions and the excitement around AWS in general.

    Lastly I love the strong company culture and how committed everyone is. Although the company is quickly growing I found everyone to be accountable for their actions, open with their areas of improvements and happy to receive feedback.

    Cons

    Given the high calibre of both colleagues and customers it can be humbling from time to time.
    It's very important to be disciplined to continuously learn in order to avoid being left behind given the fast pace that AWS is going at.

    These are not really 'cons' in my view, it's always important to look ahead and grow, this is essential to do well at AWS.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the great work you're doing by keeping our culture as we grow and keep raising the bar.
