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

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year


Pros: Everyone at Amazon is smart and fun to work with and do not subscribe to the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) that plagues software so big… Cons: Different teams at Amazon have wildly different experiences, which range from poor to awesome.

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