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

    Pros

    You are expected to learn and you'll have a lot of time to do that. Sign up bonus, sometimes relocation bonus, excellent compensation. You are working with the best, even though they are humble and they help you in anything you need (but don't expect them to spend a lot of time explaining, just ask for directions on where to find the documentation).

    Cons

    Everything changes so fast. You have a LOT to learn in the beginning, Amazon has its own way of doing everything and you have to learn the best practices. No free lunch, but compensated with your earnings, so you can choose where to eat, anyways you'll lose some time there, and you are expected to do so. Noone will sit with you and explain how things work for more than 15 minutes, you'll have to read a lot, but it's worth it, after that you'll be more independent.
