    Pros

    There is a lot to learn : Amazon uses a lot of new technologies in its code base. You will get to learn a lot of things.
    Good compensation
    Flexible working hours : The working hours is flexible as long as you do your job.
    A very high brand value.

    Cons

    Most of the teams face too much work pressure. Particularly, the one who is on call.
    Job distribution is not good. As a developer, you may have to write unit test cases, document several things.
    You are expected to work on random services which are not documented well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the work pressure from employees.
