    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, great learning opportunity for students. Flexible work hours with school.

    Cons

    Kindle org works with relatively old and uninteresting technology and maintenance and deprecation. Constant restructuring means getting moved between projects frequently.

    Pros

    you come to find out early that management HR does not care if you leave or stay that you're just a number in the system. Expendable not appreciated. I work was seriously good work ethic people with only Amazon and Amazon Customer in mind hey Princeton graduate you have people that actually have integrity character and work ethic that are often ignored as troublemakers and eventually terminated and they call it rate I think this company is a 1920 Sweatshop with a bright shiny name they did teach you one thing in Princeton Before how to lie to the public and make them think they need something that you put out there all on the backs of their children slaving away in hot buildings being bullied because they don't know their rights it's their first job people that say this is a great company are lying through their teeth if this was a great company they wouldn't have such horrific reviews online I'd like to see all Seattle upper management come down and work and our conditions you people people pay x amount of money for a piece of paper and forget where you come from shame on you be so slap yourself in the head with one of your books

    Cons

    I know what a pro and a con is I just needed the extra room I believe Amazon and its attorneys have found every loophole and every labor law possible every civil law and are walking a fine line between discrimination on every level. Bezo Your Donald Trump with your most customer Centric company.

    Great Internship Experience

    Jan 20, 2016 - Junior Software Developer in San Luis Obispo, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazon has a great working environment in SLO. Between easy-to-walk-to lunch places and free bagels on Thursday, it's situated in the perfect location. Everyone there is pleasant and willing to help out with whatever problem you need, and there's never any pressure to work late hours and on weekends.

    Cons

    While it's a great internship experience during the summer when we get to work full time, it can be easy to fall behind and not feel like much progress is being made once school starts and we work less than 20hrs/week.

    Pros

    $$$ - Solid base and sign-on bonus for year 1-2 (but don't ever expect a performance bonus or a base increase over 2.5% -Some incredibly talented people working there (not sure if any left now) -- they base their stock offers on the 30 day trailing average (of the stock's performance)- so keep that in mind when negotiating. That being said, good luck making it the 2+ years to collect

    Cons

    -Management is there to beat you down and make sure you never get promoted. I've never worked anywhere with a higher turnover rate or lower morale. -Too many levels of red-tape to count. -The mothership (seattle) still controls all the strings and music is less of a priority to amzn than all the other media teams- 'red-headed stepchild
