Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Amazon is a great entry place for engineers. A mix of some ability and some drive will get an entrant into the full engineering exposure at a fast pace. Most of the direct software managers have engineering backgrounds mostly as experienced engineers at the company they don't just know about the technology but will have insight into relative teams too.

Cons

Management ability is completely random. Many do not have the training or ability to manage. The rise by force of will culture leads to a culture of it's everyone's responsibility who has a certain level of competence to do everything. Organization makes no sense in that way.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn but your growth depends a lot on the team you are hired to.

    Cons

    Very poor facilities. Should take more care of employees. Also the operations work is high which can be a turn-off for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the facilities and try to bring good work to India office.
