    Software Development Engineer I (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros: Everyone at Amazon is smart and fun to work with and do not subscribe to the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) that plagues software so big… Cons: Different teams at Amazon have wildly different experiences, which range from poor to awesome.
