I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

money, room for creativity/openness to new ideas and trying new things

Cons

many unreasonable expectations, 60 hour+ workweek

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about your people's work/life balance and do something to make it better instead of ignoring the problem or thinking just because your worklife was/is hard you have to make it so for all that come after you.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary, and career opportunities
    Surrounded by top talent
    Looks great on a Resume

    Cons

    Work/Home life balance is difficult
    Change comes too fast, too often, and it does not have a common sense approach. Change comes in silos and is usually done for window dressing rather than attacking root causes to barriers.
    Knowledge comes at a premium and is hoarded; not shared.
