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

Pros

Amazon is really fast in hiring process. Maybe because I was an intern, but I also heard that Amazon is famous for being fast in hiring.

A lot of opportunities: it is very flexible to move to other positions and also many training sessions to attend.

Cons

Amazon is frugal and it is their value but I think they need to invest more money in their employees.

Long working hour. People work long and hard. And tough evaluation.

Advice to Management

I was an intern, so I am not sure what to say here.

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks, soda, coffee, and tea in the break-room.

    Cons

    Protect management doesn't know what they are doing. A high leave of employee turn-over. No time for professional development or corporate training..

    Advice to Management

    Actually implement an agile development process. Get input from employees on how to implement new products. Stop managing by schedule and start using metrics for estimating new products.
