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

    Pros

    I was on a good team. I had regular 1:1 meetings with my manager. They provided subsidized housing for the duration of the internship. Good pay. You can move fairly easily within the company, so if you don't like your manager or are not interested in your current work you can apply for other positions fairly easily.

    Cons

    Not as many fancy benefits as some of the other larger companies, especially for non-interns.
