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

Pros

Top-notch engineering talent and excellent compensation

Cons

Very aggressive, not lifestyle-friendly, very focused on making money, sometimes feels like a Wall Street firm. Not for the long-term unless you can be aggressive day-in and day-out for years and years

Advice to Management

Relax a bit, and respect people more

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

    Pros

    Good opportunities in terms of projects and interaction with expert developers. We learn to great extent regarding deployment and execution of services in a distributed environment. Fast-paced.

    Cons

    Might be sometimes too fast to conveniently manage your scrum tasks with meetings etc going on in parallel regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Already remaining focused and positive regarding growth of an individual. so not much of advice to the management.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in a short amount of time. Amazon offers a school accommodation which allows you to drop below full time to complete your degree.

    Cons

    Women are treated poorly. An assertive woman gets constant criticism of being "too confrontational". An unassertive woman gets nothing. Meetings start and end with fantasy football, a topic in which I find it difficult to feign interest. Work assignments appear to mirror the progress of fantasy football. There is no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    I am dissatisfied because of the disparate treatment. I will not even wait until the ink is dry on my Bachelor's before I am out of there! If you want to hire and retain women, send your male manager's to training to learn how to treat us.
