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 5 years)

Pros

Fun and challenging problems every day.
I get to work alongside and learn from some of the smartest people I know.
There are so many ways to have a big impact on millions of people.
A chance to participate in history.

Cons

Its really challenging to keep a good work life balance here, and that seems to be by design.
It's a bit of a chaotic environment and isn't always the easiest place to get things done.

    Pros

    Software engineers are highly skilled and helpful.

    Cons

    Managers are impatient and not helpful. Most of the times, you do not know where and how to seek information and they do not help you either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a solid mentoring & training program to help new hires transition in their new roles better.
