    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative and creative, Amazon pushes the boundaries of e-tailing.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. Get ready for long hours, weekends and a work life balance that will be throw off your social schedule. Amazon will due the bare minimum to fall in line with city, state and national laws and regulations but don't expect anything more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to see high turnover as long as the current structure exists. Lack of respect, trust and career development are just a few shortcomings of the Amazon culture.

    Pros

    You get to build some of the world's leading software.

    Cons

    You must support and maintain crap that somebody else wrote, but your team "owns" even though you don't have resources to make it better.
