    Alexa shopping sucks. I used to work there. Previous vp Assaf Ronen got fired. It is filled with useless directors. Team has no vision or charter. Anyways it may still be an improvement from where you are coming from

      Could you please advice me? I’m currently at Oracle and debating between Microsoft Azure Data and Intelligence working on C# for 170k TC in Redmond and Alexa Shopping in Bay Area for 250k TC.

      How is the work life balance, work culture, work and on call? I got offer from Alexa AI and I moved to Alexa Shopping for an offer in Bay Area.

    It is not Alexa and not retail. Charter is not clear and this means that the longer is works this way the more probability it will end bad, like Amazon Fresh RIP and restaurants.

      I’m not sure about the Paulo Alto team, but in Seattle it’s a mess. This org is not part of Alexa, so they have no visibility to any core development and they are treated like a third party developer.
      As for the offer, I am not sure, but you can join and transition to another team pretty quickly

      How quickly can I transition and also do I have to go through the whole interview process?

      Internal moves are fairly easy and you can move as quickly as you want. Most HMs will not require a full loop

      Wait considering my options do you suggest joining Amazon and transferring internally or just it join and continue at Oracle or choose Microsoft?

      I had an onsite for SDE in Seattle last week. The team seems to be growing, and have awesome things coming as far as partnerships etc. Seems to be a thriving org.

      So I have received an offer from Alexa AI in Seattle but I needed to stay in Bay Area. So I moved to this team because I didn’t know other teams in Bay Area. Based on that could you please advice if I should join or not?

      If I don’t join Amazon my other offer is with Microsoft in Redmond.
