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

    Pros

    The financial analyst internship is one of the best experiences I have had. It is much longer than most internship (6 months) and in this time you are given meaningful work that will challenge you and expand your skills outside of school. The most important component of the internship is the people you work with. You are surrounded with very bright, thoughtful individuals and it really helps to develop a passion for the work you do.

    Cons

    At times the internship and what is expected of you can be incredibly vague/unclear. This can be an opportunity to work on self direction but many people have trouble with ambiguity. Another drawback are the long hours. A lot of work goes into the weekly tasks and final project and there isn't much gratitude but the reward is personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Just something I noticed from non-internship employees; better benefits. One specific example would be for maternity/paternity leave. Amazon's current benefits state that paid leave does not begin until the baby is born (labor doesn't count). Show a little more appreciation for your employees and all that they do.
