Intense company. Intelligent and dedicated people

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStock keeps going up :)
Get to learn a lot from team mates.
Great managers (for the most part)
You can take on as much responsibility as you want and grow.
Chance to be part of one of the fastest growing 100Billion company

Conson call
job can be stress full at times
a lot of people are workaholics which pushes everyone to work harder and harder

Advice to Senior ManagementGet support engineers for all teams. There is no good justification for hiring expensive software engineers and making them do support work. Build better internal tools for SDEs (this is improving quite a bit, but there is a ways to go)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good pay...does not care about employees

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee)
