Pros

Working at Amazon was a great introduction to corporate culture. There were some great designers to learn from. Having experience at Amazon, even as an intern, looks impressive on a resume and will help you find employment in the future.

Cons

I don't agree with Amazon's values (poor working conditions in warehouses, tax evasion, etc.).

    Pros

    You'll work with smart people and learn a lot

    Cons

    Decent but not great compensation. On call can be painful

    Advice to Management

    The teams I've worked on where there's a separate on call group to handle the pages and only escalate to SDEs when necessary have been less stressful and just as effective. Use this model more. Also, getting promoted from SDE II is a hit and miss proposition (a lot depends on your manager); fix this, as you're losing good people because of it.
