Company of Smart People

  • Comp & Benefits

Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great attitude towards customers at all levels and all job functions resulting directly to very happy customers. Very smart colleagues Fun atmosphere Excellent tools People do try to do the right thing

Cons

Having very smart colleagues means it is harder to stand out While pay and stock grants are pretty good, other benefits are basic. Company maintains a culture of disciplined spending/frugality. I don't really think this is too much of a problem although other people seeking the "Google" perks will probably be disappointed.

    Pros

    Rapid growth Strong leadership Lots of opportunities to grow and work on exciting projects Amazon culture (if you're a good fit)

    Cons

    None of the usual tech perks (e.g. free lunch, etc.) - in fact, frugality is a core tenet Promotions are a reward for having done the level up job, not a prerequisite to doing the job
