    -- Intriguing projects

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II  in  Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere, good and qualified colleagues, and good principles. I get to work on interesting projects and to decide how to do them: from design to implementation, we do it all ourselves. Some teams work on exciting projects, others work on necessary projects. Less thrilling, but still huge amounts of data or money flows through our software, and it's gratifying to know we make a difference.

    Cons

    Your career seems to be entirely in your hands, and some bars seem pretty high.
