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

    Pros

    Bright individuals who are always winning to go the extra mile to solve the problem at hand. Innovative company with teams in various departments (from outdoor gardens to appstore) who always put the customer first.

    Cons

    Work, life balance is non-existent. Expect to stay late and work long hours - however, you will be compensated for it. Very frugal company so do not expect free lunches or extra benefits.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -You will learn a ton
    -You will have a LOT of responsibility; really gives you a chance to prove yourself
    -Get to work with brilliant people at a truly history-making company
    -Great pay

    Cons

    -Incredibly tough environment. On my team (which albeit was slightly unusual being SO new) we all worked like dogs and got absolutely no thanks for it.
    -You are on your own. There is very rarely any support.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within. It never ceases to amaze me that a company with so many brilliant minds rarely ever promotes its own employees. It was very common for people to quit, work elsewhere, then return at a hire position rather than simply receive a promotion.
