I worked at a2z Development Center (Less than a year)

Pros

There is a lot of ownership opportunities with different projects and within the job role. However, it does come with no pay increase, overworked hours with no overtime, and no round of applause.

Cons

A2Z does not promote within often, and its usually engineers. There hiring process for contractors is long, and unprofessional. They do not seem to value their employers is anyway, and have a very high turnover rate.

Advice to Management

Promote from within.

    Pros

    Amazon has a great working environment in SLO. Between easy-to-walk-to lunch places and free bagels on Thursday, it's situated in the perfect location. Everyone there is pleasant and willing to help out with whatever problem you need, and there's never any pressure to work late hours and on weekends.

    Cons

    While it's a great internship experience during the summer when we get to work full time, it can be easy to fall behind and not feel like much progress is being made once school starts and we work less than 20hrs/week.

    Advice to Management

    With the impending $15/hr minimum wage, Jr. Devs will need to be paid more in order to retain them. If they can make the same money in a less stressful job, the program will turn into a summer-only internship.
