    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had an amazing time working with Amazon. Many learning and growth opportunities. If you are talented and interested, you can move to any field in Amazon. Work culture is at par with any other Company.

    Cons

    Salary. The Only reason why I am not trying to join Amazon once again is because of their Salary Structure. We cannot depend on incentives and facilities all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve the salary structure

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are down to earth.
    Work on scale which is hard to find else where.
    Relatively flat org hence the focus is on learning and not too much on promotions. Generally your join at level 5, and may retire at 6 or 7... So focus of SDEs is learning rather than promotion.
    Amazon stock never disappoints.

    Cons

    Be prepared to write a lot... Amazon forces you to enhance your writing skills.
    Be ready to own support for your code..

    Advice to Management

    Stay the way you are humble and hungry.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    It is an amazing place to work. You happen to work with among the best people, report to the best people, talk with the best people. It is an open environment, where you can approach anyone for help no matter how much the seniority. And you are always encouraged to do stuff and you need resources or help or anything, people would do anything to help with whatever you need.

    Cons

    Depends on the kind of work you have and as to what your shift is. If you are on night shift, although you do get night shift allowance, you end up ruining your health and may be made to do overtime and extra hours.
