I would go back anytime

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Munich (Germany)

ProsI have learned a lot from Amazon. There is a lot of innovation there and I could image to go back any time.

ConsThere is one thing that I did not like at all. It is the performance reviews process and specially the calibration that was done by some people that had no idea of the team members of a group.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't spend so much time with performance reviews

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
