Do not work here.

Senior Software Dev Engineer (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsIndustry-leading scale. Amazon builds and operates some of the largest computing systems in the world.

ConsComparatively low pay, long hours, and little respect for the engineers who make the business run. Amazon views engineers as fungible and consumable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
