I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I work with some of the best engineers that I've seen. Company not too hierarchical. Good work is highly recognized. Ideas are listened to. Technical decisions are made with careful analysis.

Cons

Too many meetings. Too much email. Open space. Frugality. Sometimes work is not very engaging. Suffers from being too large. Internal tools sometimes a nightmare to work with. Specialization is difficult. Too much on-call duty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest on better tools, with better documentation. Deprecate old things. Strive for good simple designs. Encourage specialization.

    Pros

    Pays is decent, not the best but decent

    Cons

    Managers are a bunch egotistic power hungry bullies who pre on lower staff. They are a bunch of malfunctioning idots who needs to realize that the regular worker is just as much of the companie's success as they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire regular people, not morons to lead the staff!
