I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

money, room for creativity/openness to new ideas and trying new things

Cons

many unreasonable expectations, 60 hour+ workweek

Advice to Management

Care more about your people's work/life balance and do something to make it better instead of ignoring the problem or thinking just because your worklife was/is hard you have to make it so for all that come after you.

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

    Pros

    Great company with lots of smart people to work with. Good benefits, even for interns. Will subsidize living and moving expenses.

    Cons

    Forever to setup machines and setup your workspace. Sometimes you can get stuck with a really bad project, so you might or might not get lucky.
