Word hard, make history

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Amazon.com

Pros

Generally a culture obsessed with making things, and quickly. They are one of the largest ship-it-and-iterate technology companies. Customer focus is taken very seriously. I've met some great people here.

Cons

Team quality can inconsistent: some are great, some are terrible. Hiring can get out of control, with diminishing domain knowledge as senior engineers leave. Don't get stuck working on legacy code if you can help it.
