    I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Amazon was a treat - every day was an adventure. I felt like being back in high-school... You share the office with smart and funny people who take their work very seriously but have absolutely no problem goofing about. Love the fact that people can bring dogs to work.

    Cons

    Hard to get your foot in the door...
