Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Amazon full-time

Pros

Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100%... self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

Cons

You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

Advice to Management

More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.

Former Intern - Investigative Intern

I worked at Consumer Reports

Pros

Incredible mentors with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. The intern program is well-organized and encourages growth + definitely facilitates potential job opportunities.

Cons

You can go hours (or a full day) without much work – you have to ask for assignments, which can be to your benefit if you're really eager to show your strengths and potential. Don't be afraid to... ask for work! Ask to sit in on meetings and be part of editorial meetings.
