    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced and challenging. Great team bond Great manager Global exposure on a variety of projects You're rewarded and recognized if you do a good job, plenty of room to be promoted, salary increases etc

    Cons

    A lot of politics between teams and with management There's a culture of secret keeping among some teams so it can take a lot to get the information you need to do your job A culture of escalating when things go wrong, very few people look to mediate before escalating Very high standards and metrics compared to other big tech companies, if you dont adapt fast you will drown
