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

    Pros

    Learned a LOT by doing lots of different things, good guidance from managers and peers, had tons of responsibilities, great experience post-MBA. Super smart co-workers. A strong customer oriented, disruptive business philosophy that drives amazing innovation and build news business. Great CEO.

    Cons

    Worked a lot with little work-life balance. Management and supervisors care little about your career, or personal time, or overall career growth.
