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

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

Recommends
Positive Outlook
