I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Lots of exciting development going on with continual growth.

Cons

On-call process: most SDEs take turns going "on-call" and carry a pager, often having to respond to system failures in the middle of the night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to care for their team members and should try to motivate them rather than micro-managing to an extent of eating habits. Cmon!! Some of the managers here are just due to the experience with no quality education or good skills. where is your HIRE RIGHT ?
