Current Employee - Escalations Specialist

I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Amazon is very team oriented. I am challenged daily to put my best work forward, and encouraged to push myself and my team to bring new ideas forward. The diversity is extremely welcoming and there... is not one person that is not willing to assist on any project, no matter how small or big. Even though Amazon is a global company, you feel connected and feel like you really do make a difference.

Cons

It might not be a con to many, but almost everything is virtual. Could be worse!

Current Intern - Software Engineering Intern

I have been working at DigitalOcean

Pros

everyone at DO is so nice, encouraging, and helpful! It exceeds all expectations I had for a company and raises a new bar in terms of culture and work-life balance.

Cons

I have no cons here.
