    I worked at Amazon as an intern

    Pros

    My mentor was super helpful.
    Project was impactful on the team.
    Contrary to a lot of people's experiences, my team was really awesome and got along well.

    Cons

    Hard to get big things done quickly because it's a big company. Not only difficult for interns, but full timers too. We usually had to wait for approval.

    I worked at Amazon as an intern

    Pros

    You learn a lot. I received a very complex supply chain problem to solve... I'd never had any experience soever with supply chain. When I first saw the problem (it had to do with optimizing vendor experience when shipping goods from abroad), I thought "there's no way I'm gonna be able to work a solution for this". But I did solve the problem - Amazon taught me that we as people are more capable than we think.

    Cons

    I can only think of one con. Independent work is so valued in the company that people are not so willing to help one another, and sometimes don't bother to announce what they are working on. As a result, I found out towards the end of my MBA internship that my supply chain solution was already being implemented by another team! On the floor above mine! And my boss didn't know anything about it. Crazy! It basically means that my work was a waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Add Cooperation as a leadership principle!!!
