Pros

The stock is not bad, I guess. And you can say, I'm working at Amazon.

Cons

It's more like a business company compared to other giants like Google or Facebook.

    Pros

    Here are the positives... <this space intentionally left blank>

    Cons

    Job description is played down, it's not what they said it was going to be. Salary calculations from offer letter to no match actual month to month compensation. Schedule is random and always rotates, "core hours" is played up but you never know when "oncall" will be. "Oncall" is 8 hour shift IN THE OFFICE. Because of growth tools and process are often broken and the driving engineer and team take the hit.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from the mid-level down, spend a lot more time on process and verifying process works. Rework the entire hiring process to ensure you are not only protecting yourself but being fair to your canidates.
