    Pros

    Great atmosphere and place to work. Genuinely still a true startup thinking and best customer obsession I've ever seen. Couldn't wish for any place else.

    Cons

    That I haven't started earlier to work in this Amazing company.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've enjoyed my 2+ years at Amazon. Exciting projects to work on, decent pay, lots of opportunities for growth (presentations to leadership, new skills), very talented coworkers.

    Cons

    Hours can be long depending on the team, and promotions are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon would retain top talent for longer periods of time with a better pay structure to allow for deserved raises and promotions. Be proactive, it's not enough to dive and save while people are headed out the door - it sets bad precedent that the only way to get a raise is to threaten to leave. Amazon also needs to work on advancing women and minorities into top leadership positions.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
