Results oriented culture to a fault
AWS is focused on results. The motto of the company (Amazon at large) is" its day 1". However, that thread is definitely gone. It feels more like a bunch of executives jockeying to prove how much they get done.
Pros
Learn a lot, really smart people
Cons
Culture of workaholics, oncall can be tough

Great place to learn and advance your career.
AWS is absolutely fantastic place to learn more about technology. It is slightly demanding and your work life balance may not be the greatest, but it rewards handsomely, esp if you are willing to adapt to new technologies fast.

Toxic place to work
I worked as a software engineer in aws. My experience was pretty bad with them. Most of engineer's times are spent by doing operational work, like deployments, writing tickets and cms, etc. that I hated, and found super uninteresting. People are constantly refusing to help you, or collaborate. Backstabbing is the norm in aws among engineers. super toxic place to work for. the only positive is its name on your resume. so if you want that, work for a while, and then find a real programmer job somewhere else.
Pros
none
Cons
toxic workplace
