    Overworked and not cared for

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Career builder. You will be in the cutting edge of todays technology.

    Cons

    Overworked and you have no life while you work for Amazon. The rare cases of people staying with them for longer than 4 years are actually the ones that have learned how to work the internal system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the SDE-s. Don't look after M$ b/c you will end up like them.

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

    Pros

    4 day work weeks for most positions, clean and safe work environment, flexible work schedule, stock grants, health care benefits

    Cons

    Very boring, repetitive work for labor positions. Difficult to get promoted from hourly to management, poor communication, loud environment, no time to have any fun, good work gets unnoticed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better. The company can afford higher pay. Let them know when they do a good job.
