I worked at Amazon as an intern

Pros

Great supervisor, great benefits, great location, great work experience. I learned a ton in this position that I believe will serve me well in future endeavors.

Cons

The full-time post graduation offer was difficult because you don't get to know your location until about a month before you start work - so I had to turn it down.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Decent benefits for a tech company including good health care and commuter benefits
    - Fast and innovative projects
    - Great opportunities to own projects on multiple levels
    - Decent career growth

    Cons

    - Women typically make less than men
    - Knowledge of certain systems and seniority are valued higher than treating people with respect (as in someone can call your ideas stupid or you ignorant as long as their justification behind it is fine)
    - Subpar benefits compared to other big name companies

    Advice to Management

    - Give women and men similar salaries - as in don't give women higher projects and more work and then pay her less than her male coworkers
    - Provide equal opportunities to deserving employees
