    Pros

    Great culture, work hard and do things that matter. You will learn a lot as an intern

    Cons

    Don't get much time to do other things. I found it hard to keep up with my peers who all worked late and had a lot more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work hours are too long for my team. I know times vary between teams.

    - housing was in a really nice hotel, but wasn't very functional for 3 months
    - the majority of my team had only been at Amazon roughly 2 years or less

    Pros

    This company is great at letting you work the best way you can. Hours range from coming in at 7am - 11am and from going home from 4pm to 8pm. Washington is a great place to live.

    Cons

    Amazon can be very busy at times and you may be asked to work late or on weekends. Also being on call sucks and there is a constant on call rotation in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more social events between the busy seasons

    Great place to work!

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, great technology, great people.

    Cons

    Frugality is a guiding principle in the company as they see themselves as a retailer, first and foremost. It doesn't have the mindset of a Silicon Valley company regarding perks for employees such as free food.
