Current Intern - Software Development Engineer Intern in Seattle, WA
Current Intern - Software Development Engineer Intern in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Rapid growth and development, always launching new products
A big range of products and services, from retail to audio/video to web services
Good pay and benefits
Cool web services and other internal tools you can use
Flat structure in the company and a lot of freedom for the engineers. Most teams are small enough that you don't feel like part of a giant company
Many social and career-related intern events
A lot of good engineers and interns for you to talk geek and network with

Cons

The pay and benefits are not as good as other tech giants like google and facebook
The company is moving so fast that some products are a little crude and don't have the best quality
My team was really understaffed and we were launching a big product so everyone was really burned out. The fact that full time SDEs have to be on-call sucks

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so frugal! Create a more vibrant and innovative culture. Drive for good quality work not just quantity

    Current Employee - Technician in West Columbia, SC

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company name, casual though fast paced atmosphere, nice people. Having Amazon on your resume certainly is a plus, when you go looking for other work. And it is building for FCs across the country so opportunities to move up in the company come often.

    Cons

    Going through security, low pay, departments don't always work well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make hand-offs between day and nights more complete. Inbound and Outbound need to work better together.

    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.
