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

Pros

fast paced, fun, 4 day week, new and improved onsite coaching, weekly pay, paid training

Cons

bell model based land grabbers with lacking personality skills, even if you work hard and know you are working hard, HR will make it their responsibility to find you a position where you can
struggle so they can follow company model of keeping the majority of their employees off the books. great for a young person. still in conflict over their original lease agreement since day one.
unable or unwilling to pay corporate debts to original investors.

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

    Pros

    Multi-billion dollar company that is relatively new. Plenty of room to climb the corporate ladder. They count two years of Amazon experience as a bachelors degree.

    Cons

    Corporate BS, but hey, what job doesn't have that

    Pros

    Highly decentralized work environment - every team has its own culture. So pick the right team
    A very talented set of people to work with at that time

    Cons

    Lethargy? I don't know how else to put it. Things move really slow. Painfully slow. Easy to lose motivation.
