    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer I in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People were really smart and talented. There was pretty much a limitless amount of work that computers/automation could improve. Lots of opportunities to be creative.

    Cons

    On-call rotation was horrible. It really depends on what team you're on. I was on one of the bad teams There is a weekly rotation for each member of the team, and I joined a team that had an average of a page every day (which could happen in the middle of the night, even weekends). But if you're on a team that's a new product or one without a strict SLA, you're OK.
    People worked a little too hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On-call rotation has caused good talent to leave.
