Could anyone provide some information on the WLB / quality of life on AWS's S3 and EC2 teams? I've heard good things about EC2 on Blind-- any info on S3? How would you rank S3 vs EC2 vs the rest of the AWS?

    There is not a huge difference. They're both really huge teams with a really mature product. I worked on a different AWS team but in the same building as most s3 and Ec2 engineers so I had a chance to interact with them a lot.

      It depends on your team. My team members would spend 8 hours in the office and log in for an hour after dinner to reply to emails and code reviews. I remember them spending more time in the office a week before the release. I would say the balance is also better in bigger teams with mature product. My team was working on a new product.

    Do you like getting paged and working on 500 person conference calls when it crashes? If so, then I would recommend S3
