    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern

    Pros

    Seattle is great. Housing was good. Pay is very good. Great relocation team.

    Cons

    Frugal means fewer and lower quality perks. Some of things we were given fell apart. Mostly importantly experience varies greatly by team. A bad team means a very bad experience, as you are yelled at and overworked. Overwork is the culture. You will miss traditional software engineering practices, as often release is more important than quality- disproportionately so and scope creep is out of control on some teams. Recruiting is slipshod, they disappear for weeks at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better management practices for interns and employees. Some software engineering practices.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Amazon is the enormous opportunity to grow purely based on your performance and work. Also, it is a fast moving culture and you have to do everything so fast that you are kept busy and challenging at all times.

    Cons

    In Amazon Bangalore there are issues with facilities and things like office cafeteria, transport and seating needs a lot of improvement.
