"Pros: My experience at Amazon was amazing. I felt like I had a very startup like environment w the 2 pizza rule. Very smart people all around me and very helpful as well. Had some really fun intern events as well. No free pop keeps you fit! :) Work hard and play hard! Cons: The matching process when you're a coop is badly done. You are given quite vague team descriptions that dont really reflect what you may be finally picked into for that team i.e. AWS is huge and you cant specify more"

"Amazon varies a lot from team to team, so my experience does not mean all will be like this. I did not enjoy my internship at Amazon for a number of reasons. First, I was given a solo project to span the duration of my internship, but limited assistance was given because the team had priority items to work on. Secondly, Amazon's team matching experience was very poor and I ended up on a team that I had little interest in the work they do. Third, Amazon uses a lot of open source software, but does not contribute a single line of code back to the open source community. Fourth, my team had a very poor test infrastructure in place, so the build was broken on the development branch the majority of the time. I can say more, but I am out of space."

"The salary is great, especially if you opt-out of corporate housing (in that case, the salary is more like $2000/mo). Your experience at Amazon will vary greatly from team to team. For me, I liked working with the co-workers I had. However, I didn't like the type of work I was getting, and didn't feel like I got much valuable experience from it. Also, perks like free swag and food aren't to be expected (unless you have teammates willing to spend their own money for it)."

"Amazon is a great company and you'll feel proud to work there. I was on an awesome team and I enjoyed coming into work every day. Unfortunately Amazon isn't as open internally as Google or Facebook which in retrospect was a let down. Also Amazon is super stingy with money, so even though the salary is great, there isn't any free food and the swag is limited."

"Good Salary. Amazon.com is a very large company so co-op experience can vary depending on what team you are matched with. For me there were many perks: pool table, dance floor, company cruise, intern events, etc. Co-ops are given a lot of responsibility and are treated more like full time employees. "
