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

Pros

Great access to work across the company. Very smart people and a great place to start your career. Most managers are accessible and make time to discuss your work and how your time in the company has been

Cons

Work life balance is a decision on how fast you want to grow vs how relaxed you want to be. Also, ON CALL DUTY is really terrible for certain teams. So cross your fingers !!

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

    Pros

    Worked in fulfillment center. Good pay and benefits for full timers. Fun job with equally fun coworkers from all walks of life.

    Cons

    They work you like human robots. Constant pressure to keep up your numbers. Numbers seem unattainable to all but a very few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More smiles. Less numbers.

    Pros

    Rich technologies and infrastructure is a big plus to move faster and learn at same pace.

    Employees not counted, highly competitive environment leads to wrong choice and employees are sacrificed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership principals are the pillars of success to business, but those often used conveniently.
