    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good and there are lots of opportunities for career development. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is nonexistent. Workload is constantly ratcheted up without adequate support. Salaries are just average. Vast, bureaucratic organization includes a lot of careerists acting in nobody's interest but their own - lots of defending turf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason so many Amazon employees burn out after two or three years. Workload demands are simply not realistic. I'm tired of losing co-workers to places like Microsoft, where they can make just as much money and have evenings and weekends to themselves.

    No desire to keep the best of the best. In with the old, in with the new (cheaper) employees.
