I have just received an offer for Amazon Canada (Vancouver), SWE position at Operations Technology team. Anyone here have information about that team, is it good to join? WLB, how bad is it? can it compare to Asian style 9AM-9PM, 5 days per week?

Thanks

      Bullshit. Not all teams at amazon have a bad wlb. My team is great. At least I don’t have to constantly worry about layoffs unlike the previous shithole aka oracle. Also, my paycheque looks much better now.

    That team sounds like great wlb. Not all teams in amzn have bad wlb. If you're curious, ask your recruiter you'd like to speak with the manager you'll be reporting to before making a decision. Ask him how often his engineers get paged. Don't ever use the words 'work life balance'. Not alot of amazonians like that word.
