    I worked at Amazon as an intern

    Pros

    Engaging projects, competitive compensation, rich programming for interns.

    Cons

    Some teams might be too busy, so they won't invest as much time in developing their interns. However, it was not the case in my situation.

    I have been working at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team was very relaxed. Could take days off and leave early as needed and nobody would give you a hard time. YMMV of course.

    Cons

    Team is very focused on coding and push push pushing code, so much so that it felt to be at the detriment of promoting health within the team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the thing that makes Amazon great, but at the same time, don't push your employees to forego their health and personal connections with others for the sake of MORE CODE.
