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

Pros

Great place to learn a lot and work with smart people. The company is ambitious, and the pay is pretty good.

Cons

Hard to maintain a work/life balance. But it is possible. The work culture makes burnout common, so watch out.

    Pros

    Ownership, pace of learning, supportive yet tough environment. Long term career opportunities and movement within the company--once you've put your time in.

    Cons

    Expect to consistently work outside of "regular" hours with the ironic expectation to not go overtime (if hourly), but to stay extremely busy as well. Work/life balance depends on your manager, this is a results-driven company where your performance is almost solely evaluated on analytics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find new ways to motivate employees that includes some appreciation and positive reward.
