    Current Intern - Research Scientist in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Good salary. Great housing benefit. Free Rental Car. Nice city and people were really helpful. The project I was doing for my intern was challenging.

    Cons

    The working space is really narrow and dark. Felt some kind of depressed in that environment. No free food and the restaurant were either really bad or highly over priced.
