    Pros

    Interesting and challenging problems to solve, good mobility, plenty of opportunity to improve and challenge yourself. Amazon is "a tech company that just happens to do e-commerce", and so developers are first class citizens and the business revolves around delivering technology.

    Cons

    The fast environment can lead to high pressure that is not for everyone, and higher turnover means less people which means more pressure (but also more opportunity).

    Advice to Management

    Better sprint and project planning tools would help us be more productive.

  2. It is a great place to work!

    Pros

    I am impressed by what I have seen in Amazon so far. it is very efficient and well managed. The sense of ownership and customer focus is so strong that you can feel it from employees in all levels. You have opportunity to work with bunch of smart people. People here are kind and willing to offer help as long as you ask.

    Cons

    The ramp up curve is big. It usually takes about few months to understand Amazon technology and culture. No formal training program.

    Advice to Management

    It is a challenge to grow so fast but still keep the original culture. Middle layer management team is the key.
