Pros

Very competent management. Talented and efficient colleagues.

Cons

Huge operational burden and "oncall" pain in most teams. Hard to move up. Difficult to work on big projects from scratch unless yo uare a principle engineer, which is really high up the ladder.

Advice to Management

Think about why Amazon does such a bad job at attracting and retaining senior technical talent.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to implement ideas and to prove yourself. Easy access to resources and people. People are willing to help you be successful.

    Cons

    You may have to work longer hours than desired at times. The company loses a lot of talent because of work hours. It can be a challenge to keep a family/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    I was happy and satisfied with management. They always made time for me and helped individually to be successful. I had access to great leaders.
