    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    On the right team and project, Amazon is a great place to work. Extremely talented people, and interesting problems. Amazon leans heavily towards investing in the long term which means it explores some fascinating areas and makes big bets. Think of it as a well funded VC firm funding many startups (AWS, Amazon Instant Video, Amazon Fresh, etc.)

    Cons

    As it grows, Amazon is becoming more "corporate". Also, oncall responsibilities can be a burden on the wrong team.
