Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Work on real problems in real time
Work with very intelligent people

Some have bad experiences with work-life balance. I did not have any problems with this, working 7-8 hours a day.

Advice to Management

The frugality can scare people away at times, but it seems this is becoming more lax.
