Pros

I was on a good team. I had regular 1:1 meetings with my manager. They provided subsidized housing for the duration of the internship. Good pay. You can move fairly easily within the company, so if you don't like your manager or are not interested in your current work you can apply for other positions fairly easily.

Cons

Not as many fancy benefits as some of the other larger companies, especially for non-interns.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. Fast moving and open environment. The company caters to its SDEs and knows that they are where the rubber meets the road. Close work with the business to understand their needs and the customer's needs. Everyone is moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance sucks in some groups. The worst part is if you get stuck under a manager who has NO idea what leadership and management really is. Amazon is full of AWFUL managers. That is slowly improving, but not quickly. Most managers still treat the employees more like a liability than an asset.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the Dev Managers. Some are fantastic and are focused on growing the people and the teams. Others are still stuck in micromanaging their teams and trying to make themselves succeed instead of their teams.
