    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with smart people. Work with high quality development tools and frameworks. Work on stuff that makes a difference. Switch positions (teams, roles) easily. Learn a lot.

    Cons

    Not that flexible work arrangements. Benefits are not great. Have fun of "work hard, have fun, make history" is largely missing.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Jeff Bezos? Hahaha, he is clearly above and beyond mere mortals. Amazon corporate structure is so big and complex that I don't even know who owns what under Jeff.
