    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work at if you are looking at rapidly improving your knowledge base. Very fast paced and dynamic work environment which keeps you on your toes all the time and ensures you deliver. Most of them on the business side are extremely intelligent and grounded people who are quite approachable and humble.

    Cons

    Lot of politics in some teams- but this is the case with most of the companies. Compensation is good but increments are rather meager during appraisal.

    Pros

    1. Compensation - Amazon pays you adequately
    2. Brand Value - Amazon alumni are going places

    Cons

    1. Work-life balance is not proportional to the pay.
    2. Some of the senior management do not recognize your value and consequently the higher attrition rates
    3. High customer satisfaction but low employee satisfaction
    4. Does not have the perks that are there in some of the other tech companies like Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the high hiring bar.
