Fast paced, lots of old stuff

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsAmazon can be a great place to work depending on how you want to job to be and where you want to go with your career. There are lots of great opportunities but the job is frequently rough.
- fun culture
- lots of interesting work
- company is currently heading a great direction

Cons- some teams have LOTS of legacy baggage
- resistance to change
- huge amounts of time spent on operations
- you should know you'll be carrying a pager around

Advice to Senior ManagementThey're In a tough spot. A little too tactical i.e. micromanaging sometimes. Management might want to step back a little bit and put some trust in engineers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
