    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Recently joined Amazon Ads organization with 6 weeks in. The team is very friendly and always willing to help. All the Amazonians I've met are friendly and kind. The Ad space is interesting, the team is taking on a new project and tech stack which is great. I had a few team lunches already at a few restaurants by the office. Currently hybrid model of working with two days in the office and rest work from home per week. However, I enjoy coming to the office everyday. There's a happy hour every Thursday to chat with people from other teams. Lots to learn and a big code base, still learning most of the systems, tools, culture, etc. Majority of co-workers in the entire office are young or middle age people, so everyone is easy to get along, not saying older people aren't lol. Good offering of events to attend and courses to learn for free by Amazon. Partial reimbursements on expenses such as travel, etc. Never really heard or saw someone getting pip'd. I think the people that get pip'd are the ones who make posts majority of the time. Got tickets to go to local fair Playland by Amazon which was nice since I recently joined. No specific time to start work or leave work, although they are some set daily meetings. I usually like to come to the office before 10 am and leave at 6 pm anyways, so I learn as much as possible.

    Cons

    Snacks are brought in by managers sometimes and usually last a few weeks. Although they are not regularly offered by Amazon. Would be nice to get meals but not bothered by this much. Not much else I could think of at this time.
    Taxes almost take half of the bonuses and salary. I guess this is normal and not much Amazon can do, thought I would mention it though.

    Advice to Management

    Please kindly provide healthy snacks at your Vancouver, Canada offices if meals are not feasible. This would increase productivity because it would mean less time leaving the office and going to shops for food or drinks. Also local networking events would be great.

    I have been interviewed by a recruiter. He asked questions about my CV. My work permit, my previous research, and so on. Then he explained the interview process and the job itself.
