  1. A good place to start, but being an SDET is a horrible career choice.

    Pros

    The benefit of working at a large company in terms of fringe benefits around Seattle. Great place to start in software, can easily move around the company.

    Cons

    Advancement is nebulous and is highly dependent on whether or not your boss is competent at his/her job.

    SDET career path is an absolute joke. Almost impossible to get beyond level 62. Was lied to at every step of the way, being told there was headroom, but there never really was.


  2. Ok place to work
