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

    Pros

    Amazon provided a great atmosphere to work. Really talented group of people to work with. A good place to intern and learn from some really smart people. Interns are treated as full time employees and given enough independence.

    Cons

    Too much work load sometimes.

    Former Employee - Principal Product Manager in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Principal Product Manager in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - High caliber of employees
    - Wide range of responsibilities expected of everyone
    - Good compensation
    - Fast-paced environment

    Cons

    - Work overload. No boundaries when it comes to working nights, weekends, and any time you may want to have a non-Amazon thought. This is after 12.5 years in 6 different departments.
    - Cut Throat - the culture there is intense, and not for the fainthearted. Since there is a strict policy of cutting the bottom 10 percent per year, it creates an environment where managers are _looking_ for someone faltering.
    - Customer-Not employee-centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Chill out.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
