    Not Good

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

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an 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.

    Pros

    Rapid growth
    Strong leadership
    Lots of opportunities to grow and work on exciting projects
    Amazon culture (if you're a good fit)

    Cons

    None of the usual tech perks (e.g. free lunch, etc.) - in fact, frugality is a core tenet
    Promotions are a reward for having done the level up job, not a prerequisite to doing the job
