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

Pros

-very good salary
-fast growing company
-mostly interesting projects to work on
-if you are not in HQ, you still get to travel to Seattle every once in a while
-very smart people working there.

Cons

-lots of work may cause poor work/life balance. This didn't apply to me as I was an intern, but a lot of the times it was clear my team was working way more than I was

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

    Cons

    After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

    Advice to Management

    It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.
