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

Pros

great product to work for
great and passionate people to work with

Cons

All directions and decisions are being made in Seattle, or if you are lucky, in Luxembourg - so you might have a say in it (i frankly never had)
Actual results do not matter, just show off, change some numbers and you will be a star
If you are bad, you will be treated badly. If you are good, you'll get more work, and probably will be treated less badly
The training are made by in house employees who want to train. You want to learn SQL? good - let me train you. If you want external training - you'll have a bad time
Frugality is one of the cornerstones of Amazon. But if you get a cheap laptop, no training, less budget to hire people ... it's just frustrating and makes you inefficient

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Frugality is blocking a lot of work and creates frustration. Ease up
Listen to your employees - and if you listen, do care
Do not reward arrogance

    Pros

    Amazon has key leadership principles that they live and breath by. Everyone is passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    At Amazon you need to be able to manage your work life balance. You will be passionate about what you do, and everyone else is as well. It's very easy to take work home with you!

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company that has high safety standards when many other warehouses do not

    Cons

    Amazon has a habit of working their employees very hard. Most of them burn out or they find a way to terminate the rest of their employees after two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty Integrity and value your employees as people
