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

Pros

Amazon is very nice to interns and summer in Seattle is very comfortable. Interns have the chance to complete a project independently.

Cons

Projects designed for interns could be very different from each other in different groups. Some are very well designed while others are not. A little bit unfair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Human resource turnover is little bit high?
