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

    Pros

    Stock keeps going up :)
    Get to learn a lot from team mates.
    Great managers (for the most part)
    You can take on as much responsibility as you want and grow.
    Chance to be part of one of the fastest growing 100Billion company

    Cons

    on call
    job can be stress full at times
    a lot of people are workaholics which pushes everyone to work harder and harder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get support engineers for all teams. There is no good justification for hiring expensive software engineers and making them do support work. Build better internal tools for SDEs (this is improving quite a bit, but there is a ways to go)
