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.

    Pros

    Amazon.com is a great brand name for your resume - everyone will think your retail and/or cloud genius.

    Cons

    They are cheap, cheap, cheap, and expect you to work 24x7. They're so cheap that managers get little to no training, which is reflected in their immature management style (e.g. "you stay late while I go home," "plans, what are those?"). Those that have risen through the ranks at Amazon are part of a "good'ol boy" network (e.g. there is an all you can eat chicken wing circle that is exclusively men because what woman would want to stuff her face in front of co-workers?) and seem to lack the skills to succeed in comparable positions elsewhere - but hey, Amazon isn't the worst place to be stuck ;-)
