Take Google's engineering scale, mix Apple's customer satisfaction focus, and you get Amazon

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

ProsFor an engineer, not excited about the roller-coaster ride in a start-up, it cannot get any better than Amazon. You will get to work of technologies that need to scale to cater million if customer, and hundreds of million requests made by these customers. With AWS as backbone, and working with tons of in-house and open source technologies, you will gain invaluable experience, which ensure both technical and financial growth. The companies motto of being frugal and passing the saving to the customer will ensure you always come up with the right engineering solution to problem.

ConsGood pay, but not a lot of extra perks. Limited financial growth at the company, but it prepares you for good financial growth outside the company.
