Current Employee - Software Development Engineer  in  Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

big name on resume, you will learn to see the things end to end

Cons

Salary is less compared to other leaders in industry, absolutely no work life balance, no training, no personal development, no good leaders in upper management. The management can take time to complete its deliverables but SDEs do not get extension on deadlines. Too much politics in the organization. Amazon.com Shipping/Transportation dept is the worst department ever for SDEs. The SDMs look like kids from kindergarten with absolutely no people management skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am sure amazon.com Stock is a big bubble which will burst very soon. Company has 30-40% growth in revenue but the profit is negative

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company with lots of smart people to work with. Good benefits, even for interns. Will subsidize living and moving expenses.

    Cons

    Forever to setup machines and setup your workspace. Sometimes you can get stuck with a really bad project, so you might or might not get lucky.
