Current Employee - Research Scientist in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Good salary. Great housing benefit. Free Rental Car. Nice city and people were really helpful. The project I was doing for my intern was challenging.

Cons

The working space is really narrow and dark. Felt some kind of depressed in that environment. No free food and the restaurant were either really bad or highly over priced.

    Seems not a long-term company to work at.

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

    Pros

    I'm working at AWS. The system is well made but also it's complicated enough to let you spend your time only to learn it for a year long.

    Cons

    It's a sort of survival game here. Also it seems the company doesn't care about employee's departure. There's always many people on the line willing to join the team but once they join the team sooner or later many look for another opportunity. Management layer is filled with non-engineering people who mostly care about numbers. You should expect working more harder here even weekend. Engineers are responsible to everything that includes operations, deployment and on-call support. Which is fine but I don't feel it's that much cooperative environment. Visibility management is a must here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What do you think the reason why it's hard to see people worked here more than 2 years here.

    Fast paced, customer driving, smart coworker, cutting edge technology
