    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you can get things done, this is the place to be. No one will stop you to try new things. Moving to different teams are encouraged a lot. Great opportunity to transfer to Amazon international offices permanently.
    Very intelligent set of people to work with.
    You will get to really own deliveries in your capacity.

    Cons

    After you join, hikes are not great. Promotions are only for the very best. You can end up spending considerable amount of time in your current job level.
    No focus on employee satisfaction apart from compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on Employee satisfaction.
