Software Development Engineer

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

ProsInteresting and challenging problems to solve, good mobility, plenty of opportunity to improve and challenge yourself. Amazon is "a tech company that just happens to do e-commerce", and so developers are first class citizens and the business revolves around delivering technology.

ConsThe fast environment can lead to high pressure that is not for everyone, and higher turnover means less people which means more pressure (but also more opportunity).

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter sprint and project planning tools would help us be more productive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
