    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really genuinely invested in their employees. Everyone is really smart, I often feel a bit like an impostor :)
    The teams are really welcoming and supportive.

    The interview was one of the most amazing experiences professionally. It took lots of preparation but all of it was worth it.

    Cons

    It's all self-service here. You have to be a natural self-starter. It can be really easy to get sidetracked not doing your job.

    In the interview, you can feel like you are in no-mans land, it's just the internal process they go through.

    Advice to Management

    None so far. All open and welcoming!
