I worked at Amazon Lab126 as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

- Great line of products
- Great location

Cons

- Not a structured internship program
- The management does not know about the internship projects and are not ready to devote their time on such projects
- Interns are held to a higher standard than full time employee by submitting a white paper
- Interns not provided with enough respect and time
- Managers are very rude and aggressive. They held some polish and training on soft leadership skills taught in MBA program
-Managers are not interested in the development of the career of interns

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Step it up and hire managers and leaders with great soft skills and high EQ.
- Dont hire interns for positions that do not exist in first place

    Pros

    Amazon stock if you are fortunate enough to survive three+ years

    Cons

    Pure politics. Laughable product design flow. Constant project resets. Any innovation is stifled by management. Focus is on management of large teams that don't execute. No patent bonus award. Backloaded RSU structure which many people are forced to quit before vesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the OLR processes, it is only breeding political agendas. Take risks and stop maintaining the status quo.
