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 (more than an year)

Pros

Very active culture
You get to work with very smart people
Things move very fast so you don't have time to get bored

Cons

Your progress will largely depend on your manager, their claim to love numbers more than anything applies only where it is convenient.
Horrible life work balance - you are pretty much expected to do something extra just to keep up.
Compensation is 'OK' don't expect to see any bonuses, at work place perks. They take frugality and turn it into penny pinching.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some great engineers. An impressive suite of development and deployment tools.

    Cons

    To many layers of management. Most of those management layers don't have anything to do but play politics.
