What I liked

I guess the safety office (AMCare) which is basically on-site nurse and the fact that they make so easy for us to call off and fix our time card using a mobile app.

The workload, the constant monitoring and negative interaction with lead and management in general, they ask for too much but never listen to us. Even Human Resources doesn't really feel any type of empathy towards the workers.

Accounting Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2020 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

The work I put into my project is being implemented in the team. I liked that they valued and appreciated my efforts as an intern. The flexible work schedule, frequent communication with manager and mentor, two performance evaluations during the 10-week internship, networking opportunities, free merch the accounting team mailed to us, and lots of events to learn about the team and opportunities in the company were other perks I enjoyed.

What I wish was different

More transparency within the team and with student programs about my project and how to handle certain situations working remotely.

Advice

Be prepared to put a lot of time and dedication into your intern project. Amazon is big on writing memos, so I'd make sure you're okay or comfortable writing frequently during your time here.
