What makes it so great?
"I was really interested in retail and a general management experience. I really enjoy what I do here, a big part of it is because you get a lot of ownership and responsibility. There are always new challenges and I really feel that I have decision making power over the business and can do things that drive change, which is rare for a business student right out of school. It's very rewarding to see something you do come to fruition. As for the Amazon culture, I bought a lot more jeans since I started and we have a team dog, JJ, and we take a break every so often to throw balls with JJ. It's a great environment to be in."
-- Claire O'Donnell, 2010 graduate of Harvard Business School
