Pros

* The environment constantly pushes you to learn something new
* Always a new problem to solve - Not boring at all.
* Making a difference to customers - Satisfying

Cons

* Work life balance needs to be watched out. Its tempting to forget it all and work all the time. But its up to individuals to balance.

    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    1.very smart people
    2. Friendly environment for the most part
    3. Very heavy on technology and services

    Cons

    1.no process-no direction
    2.features will get dumped on you in the very last minute
    3.management does not seem to care about how much pain and craziness the individual contributors are going through.
    4.Deadlines almost never change
    5. I have not come across one single amazonian who is not over worked or has not complained
    6. You are expected to check and respond to your Emails even on weekends and long weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.Please give importance to work life balance
    2. Introduce processes that work and not just talk about them
    3. Understand that there are few things that individual contributors will NOT be able to change without higher management help. So please do not say that "You take care of it , I will back you up". It just does have as much weight when we say it and it gets lost and ends up in lot of frustration and eventually attrition.
