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

Pros

Great access to work across the company. Very smart people and a great place to start your career. Most managers are accessible and make time to discuss your work and how your time in the company has been

Cons

Work life balance is a decision on how fast you want to grow vs how relaxed you want to be. Also, ON CALL DUTY is really terrible for certain teams. So cross your fingers !!

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of college, you can learn a lot in a short time and get the name on your resume.

    Cons

    Long hours, legacy codebase and lack of documentation. Burnt out in a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a few products and services Spending your energy in so different areas results in mediocre quality.
