    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some great engineers. An impressive suite of development and deployment tools.

    Cons

    To many layers of management. Most of those management layers don't have anything to do but play politics.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
