    Pros

    Great on-boarding! Amazon insists that all new staff "learn to walk before they [are allowed to] run." Lot's of training in the unique Amazon ways.

    Support from management -- locally and globally -- is terrific. They are as invested in your success as you are, which is really refreshing.

    Cons

    The unique recruitment process can be very long (4-12 weeks, or longer). A "necessary evil" to screen and recruit the best and brightness but potentially agonising for some candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!

    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.
