    No longer a place where "builders can build". Mediocre company with mediocre pay & benefits relative to industry.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Toronto, ON

    I worked at full-time


    - several businesses are industry-leading and will continue to do well (Amazon retail, AWS, Kindle)
    - internal developer tools and expertise is still a great asset


    - increase in management levels, degrading talent, and churn is leading to a slower company with poorer quality products
    - hiring bar getting lower; best employees are leaving since there is nothing particularly attractive to retain them
    - mediocre pay and benefits relative to an overall tech industry that pays very generously
    - stock at current price has limited upside compared to industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the main company values is "Amazon is a place where builders can build." That is no longer true. There is too much middle management, politics, and bs. Amazon needs to nurture and retain the best and brightest developers and dev leads, not those who love running meetings and playing politics.
