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

Pros

for those who can't get better places/companies

Cons

-- middle management is completely corrupted with politics
-- managers will take the credit from your work and dump the discredits to you
-- as big as Microsoft but no monopoly product in the market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fire quite a few middle managers

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of experienced engineers on board and there are always plenty of resources to guide you if you need help.

    Cons

    One's experience varies team to team. My manager didn't seem very interested in making sure employees are happy. I communicated with my managed for less than an hour during my entire stay at Amazon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to consider looking after their employees before the company gets out of control. Being frugal is okay to a certain limit but I think they cross the line a lot of times.
