    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, and there's a great work environment there, with many chances to prove yourself. There is a constant push to advance your career, and you are given many opportunities to succeed.

    Cons

    There are not nearly as many perks as working at a place like Google. Above the base salary, the only other good perks is the stock units, which is pretty standard at any big company.

    The atmosphere of frugality goes too far sometimes, as it can be hard for an SDE to even get a second monitor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up some and give your trusted employees the same kinds of perks that other top-notch companies give if you want to be considered a top-notch company
