Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test in Seattle, WA

Pros

Employees are encouraged to demonstrate leadership skills at any job level.
Encourages knowledge sharing, changing of job roles and internal transfers.
Amazon maintains internal wiki, which contains lots of information, it is useful during initial learning curve for new employees

Cons

Amazon is fast paced, so documentation is not thorough for some components. Lots of knowledge would come from experience using different tools or discussing with senior peers.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    Retail and Search are good . they actually work on developing new features and lot of opportunities to work on cutting edge technologies .
    amazon highly focus on perl - mason , java .
    Many systems are already in place so you can reuse existing system and work on developing new features . very good monitoring tools and great place to learn if you land in right org .

    Cons

    orgs such operations is not a good org . they have very high operational load and projects are not very good .

    if u r hired as support role in amazon.com then becoming sde is very challenging . people lie that you will have opportunity to become sde by doing development but the fact is that support role do not really get any development opportunities so beware .
    very dynamic and agile so you end up pushing incomplete feature or work very long hours to meet the deadline .
