    Lof of learning, great place for new college hires but management enforces hierarchical structure.

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

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

    Pros

    Lot of learning opportunities.
    Very intelligent co-workers.
    The scale of problems are so big, only few companies have problems at such large scale.

    Cons

    Not a startup and they keep saying frugality drives innovation but we do not need to be frugal any more so generally we get away by adding a few hundred machines every time a scale issue comes up.

    Management forces SDE-II/SDE-III to be influential but that creates a bad work environment. Senior engineers have to force their decisions on junior engineers to meet their goals. Works well until you are SDE-I but as you become more experienced you would probably like to understand why trade-offs you are making in your design/development are worst then suggested by some other senior engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make goals that allows people to work together instead of forcing them to be rude.
