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

Pros

-No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful!
-Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met!
-This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up.
-Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

Cons

-It's hard work. Every day.
-The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Manager III in Seattle, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, lots of cool projects, really value their top employees, good compensation

    Cons

    poor health care benefits, caustic work environment (dog eat dog), high attrition rate, too much work not enough life balance, really only values top top employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the reputation that you have in the community. You have 1/2 of an incredible company (i.e. the smart people, cool projects, $ to spend, customer focus), but your regretted attrition rate speaks to a culture that doesn't truly value its employees.
