    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are intense and intelligent. They like to have fun, and they work hard. Kindle has autonomy to do a lot of things first, so innovation is rampant.

    Cons

    The team you are on makes all the difference. If you are on a team that is not well-managed, you are in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for the ones that you find valuable. Sometimes that means allowing people to transfer early.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst Intern  in  Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Financial Analyst Intern in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -You will learn a ton
    -You will have a LOT of responsibility; really gives you a chance to prove yourself
    -Get to work with brilliant people at a truly history-making company
    -Great pay

    Cons

    -Incredibly tough environment. On my team (which albeit was slightly unusual being SO new) we all worked like dogs and got absolutely no thanks for it.
    -You are on your own. There is very rarely any support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within. It never ceases to amaze me that a company with so many brilliant minds rarely ever promotes its own employees. It was very common for people to quit, work elsewhere, then return at a hire position rather than simply receive a promotion.
