A place to start

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

ProsAmazon 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.

ConsManagement 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
