Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

Pros

-decent pay & signon bonus.
-Big company, talent teammates.

Cons

-unrealistic project schedule, but manager don't think so, they think devs can solve all the problems in a short time. Managers don't care about devs.
-teammates are very aggressive.
-oncall is horrible. you're paid as SDE but you're also doing the job as SDET and support engineer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down a little bit and do a better schedule, if you're not coding, please take some time to rethink if some features are realistic for the devs. Try to be nice to non-native speakers, we're human not machines.
