    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a 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 have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Other companies love to hire people with Amazon experience as they know they are overworked but smart and know what they are doing.

    You'll never work with smarter people.

    Corporate is dog-friendly.

    Cons

    Zero Work/Life balance. Instead of hiring 1 person to do the job of 1 person, they hire 1 person to do the job of 3 people. It helps eliminates a potential for layoffs, but doing 3 full-time jobs is absurd.

    Internal promotions require tons of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your employees as potential hires - if you would hire them on at a level higher than they are currently, expect someone else to give them that promotion if you won't.
