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

    Pros

    Everyone has heard of Amazon. The role gives you a lot of technical skills you can apply or share in the future.

    Cons

    Very few return offers. Depending on the teams, but my team does not show appreciation to my work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should consider hiring from more high-end universities instead of being trapped in the Seattle region. Who you hire is who you are. If most of the employees are from mid-ranked universities, the company will eventually stay mid-ranked.

    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    talented coworkers, flexible work hours, great company principles, work environment is relaxed, many opportunities to receive feedback from mentors and managers.

    Cons

    work experience may vary wildly between teams, potential to be overworked, there are a minimum amount of perks on the job as it would contradict a core tenet of being frugal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed the feedback and recognition I got from management upon completing projects. It helps to continue improving and track your career progression.
