Current Employee - Whs Specialist

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

Pros

Very nice work environment. You will learn so much when it comes to EHS and will develop you. Leaders help you grow and working with operation managers is easy. Pay is great too.

Cons

Sometimes can be stressful like all EHS careers and is not a fun industry but that depends on the person.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at SmartThings full-time for more than a year

Pros

SmartThings has a huge platform with high volumes of traffic, a plethora of technologies used, and brilliant engineers.

Cons

It can be demanding, the world of IOT is moving extremely fast.

Advice to Management

Reliability engineering should be a first class concern. New features are great, but reliability engineering should be a first class product concern that requires continuous investment as it has the... most direct impact on our customers.
