    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart peers,
    Good pay,
    Freedom and ownership.
    Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

    Cons

    Work-life balance
    No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )
