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

Pros

Brilliant people, fast-moving and industry-changing products, top-level salary vs. peers, will let you take initiative early on, pure meritocracy

Cons

slow promotions (intentionally designed that way), aggressive culture, long hours for a tech company, zero perks (not even a subsidized lunch)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Frugality is awesome, but at times it is a bit too much (e.g., subsidize the cafeteria...)

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with and technical support for you to get your job done.

    Cons

    They lack a fleshed out (informal) test process which takes some getting used to and maybe irritating to some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication between teams and provide more requirements documentation.
