    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to explore projects, good overview of how the entire fulfillment process works, people were nice and helpful

    Cons

    Very little guidance from management as far as giving me specific things to work on, lots of employee turnover and transitions, forced to find my own work and teach myself a lot of things if I wanted to learn more than the basics and try to make actual improvements.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, day goes by quickly. Freedom to run area as you see fit. Senior management receptive to suggestions and changes. Good associates.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Short sighted at times as the push for continuous improvement doesn't allow for systems to become established and work. Difficult to remove under-performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely so much on the Pathways Program.
