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

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging problems to solve, good mobility, plenty of opportunity to improve and challenge yourself. Amazon is "a tech company that just happens to do e-commerce", and so developers are first class citizens and the business revolves around delivering technology.

    Cons

    The fast environment can lead to high pressure that is not for everyone, and higher turnover means less people which means more pressure (but also more opportunity).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better sprint and project planning tools would help us be more productive.

    Recommends

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    amazon is a growing company with many interesting problems. the complexity and scaling of the business bring a lot of challenges.

    Cons

    pay-wise is ok but not great. one leadership principle of the company is frugal, so do not expect great packages and benefits
