    Not Good

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    * Chance to work and learn things that happen at a mammoth scale.
    * If you are a workaholic, this is your place to be at and learn things quickly.

    Cons

    * Work Environment not on par with good companies like Microsoft, Google or Facebook.
    * Attrition rate is too high among employees.
    * The frugality involved in almost every aspect of the company seems to help no one other than the CEO himself.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Phoenix, AZ (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    3 days off per week

    Cons

    Communication very poor
    very young managers
    do not promote from within as much as they could
    Feel like cattle being herded
    Some managers treat hourly workers like children and with disrespect
    I am a college graduate and tried move up but their communication and interview processes were so poorly run that I left and much happier at company where I am respected and valued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training is a joke
    Managers need more mentoring (young and old) not just those right out of collegE
    Procedural changes n red to be better communicated
