    Not Good

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

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (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.

    No MBA? No Future!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Dogs allowed at workstations. Online resources to self-teach.

    Cons

    Company actively pursues and recruits MBAs with no relevant experience and discriminated against Bachelor holders with relevant experience! No work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need a good balance of education and experience. Graduate school can't teach you everything!
