Work Hard and Play Never

Amazon demands a lot of its developers, but if you can stick with them, the pay is great, and the benefits are pretty above-average. If you've got the drive, the talent, and the spare time, go for it.


Income, Opportunity to Move Around


Long Hours, Lower Appreciation

Horrible management, work like a mule

Chaotic management, no regard for work quality. Work life balance is non existent, company does not respect its employees. Go somewhere else if you want to be a decent human being.


Compensation on par with market


Company will work you until burn out

Some teams are good, but upper management is terrible

I originally had a good manager, but then we got a new one. The new manager was focused more on making it look like we were productive than actually producing a usable product. I also sat in on a meeting with upper management for our org and they spent the entire time aggressively grilling teams. The management was very negative.


High base pay


Very few perks, no free lunch, very little vacation time
