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

    Pros

    - you get huge responsibility fast
    - you can have a great impact right away
    - all employees follow the leadership principles
    - salary is good and above market average
    - international teams, lot of opportunities
    - very open culture and moving to another job is not difficult
    - since I joined the share value went up 50%. It is a very successful company and you can feel it working here

    Cons

    - work/life balance can be sometimes a challenge
    - fast pace environment (start-up mentality but large teams to manage) = not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    I met some of the best managers in my career here after I have worked for Cisco and Microsoft. Managers are very detail orientated and sometimes it is great if they can let go and leverage more the experience of managers reporting to them. Other than that, it is just a great team
