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

Pros

Working at Amazon was a great introduction to corporate culture. There were some great designers to learn from. Having experience at Amazon, even as an intern, looks impressive on a resume and will help you find employment in the future.

Cons

I don't agree with Amazon's values (poor working conditions in warehouses, tax evasion, etc.).

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Challenging. Innovative. Iterates to perfection. Customer Centric. Opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get work done.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Overburdens employees. Cheap, not frugal. No direction. Got to figure out everything on your own. I can't imagine having less work-life balance. Good money but awful work/life balance, hours, pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire for the work needed rather than assign work to whomever is available. HR needs improvement. No ethics!
