    I worked at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thought working for Amazon would be a horrifying experience but it was definitely not. I did not work 80+ per week. I was assigned an interesting project and received supportive guidance from my mentor.

    Cons

    I did not get to interact with many people from other teams. Also, did not get to know much about company overall structure and vision.

    Advice to Management

    I was blissed to have a wonderful manager who gave me constructive feedback on my performance. She made my internship experience very fulfilling and pleasant.
