Current Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern in Tempe, AZ

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

Pros

-very good salary
-fast growing company
-mostly interesting projects to work on
-if you are not in HQ, you still get to travel to Seattle every once in a while
-very smart people working there.

Cons

-lots of work may cause poor work/life balance. This didn't apply to me as I was an intern, but a lot of the times it was clear my team was working way more than I was

    I was an intern - good learning experience, but must take things into own hands.

    Former Employee - Floor Supervosor in Coffeeville, AR

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Structure, Safety and by the book management.

    Cons

    Breaks were hard. You had to walk to break room and go through security to start your fifteen minute break took you 6 minutes just to get there. If want to heat something up to eat...well forget it. For 750 employees there were only 6 microwaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    That was my advise. As a floor supervisor myself, I was very successful at an encouraging approach with the production workers. Rather then a a brow beating approach which was the way I was treated when I started working for them 4 years ago.
