    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very cooperative and helpful. You always see good moods among the fellow employees. I had the chance to make big friendships there.

    Cons

    Too demanding work. You have to learn and do all by yourself - don't expect anyone to show you how to do your job. Look in the company internal wiki.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was very disappointed with the decision of the company to lay me off. I never had the chance to receive a feedback from my manager and never had the chance to understand why I was fired.

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    1. Very positive working environment for engineers; coworkers help each other out.
    2. Be able to work on cutting edge technologies in Amazon.
    3. Amazon got a great leader, Jeff Bazos, who is very smart and has made many right decisions.
    4. Amazon dominates the e-retail business.
    5. Amazon Web Services (AWS) are doing really well in the cloud computing market.

    Cons

    1. Operational tasks take a lot of time, as a result fewer time can be spent on actual development.
    2. Oncall overheads in some teams are crazy and oncall can be paged many times.
    3. Employee benefit is not that good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing the salary, which is not that competitive anymore.
