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

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

    Pros

    Interesting 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Better sprint and project planning tools would help us be more productive.
