Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Amazon has a high hiring bar with competitive compensation and bonuses, and therefore bright people you can learn a lot from about new cutting edge and large scale technologies.

Cons

Benefits are at ok level, and you can expect to be doing multiple types of activities during your tenure there - beginning with requirements definition, and finishing with operations support and being on pager duty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wish the technical side of the company was more structured into Operations support, development, QA.
