Overworked and not cared for

Former Employee - SDE2 in Seattle, WA (US)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Career builder. You will be in the cutting edge of todays technology.

Cons

Overworked and you have no life while you work for Amazon. The rare cases of people staying with them for longer than 4 years are actually the ones that have learned how to work the internal system.

Advice to Management

Empower the SDE-s. Don't look after M$ b/c you will end up like them.

    Pros

    good culture was tranperent and people were humble and seen mentors encouraging their peers to grow along with them

    Cons

    couple of the management team members does not tolerate the peers to be more energetic and knowledgeable than them either they are tortured so they they leave the org .

    How loyal you are to the org but to get back to Amazon is an Hilarious task as we have to please N number of people.

    Advice to Management

    Pls do have the same culture as in US and maintain transparency in terms of employee engagement and the process/procedures do not limit them to the pals of the decision makers
