    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great compensation
    Convenient location
    Subsidized housing (for interns)
    The few nice people are great
    Resume booster
    Lots of opportunities in different organizations

    Cons

    Most people do not like to collaborate or share information. Most requests get ignored.
    Lots of backstabbing/passive-aggressive behavior
    Too many arrogant people that talk down to others
    Very little direct feedback, even when asked. Many interns were caught blind-sighted even though they were doing a good job of asking for feedback
    Hiring seemed arbitrary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give feedback. Coach. Build a collaborative culture in your organization for even better results.

    Pros

    “Amazon is a great company with an elite operations arm.”

    Cons

    Shift life can be rough for individuals with families. You have little say in which shift you will be working and I have found a lack of a succession planning for the more desirable shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More career development for junior managers.
