Have an offer at the Sunnyvale office for Amazon Devices team.
Just wanted to get a sense of how’s the crowd, workplace, cafeteria, WLB and benefits (yes trying to find a silver lining)?

Bracing myself for brutal comments.

Ps - I’m allergic to banana jokes/comments. Please be considerate.

Offered first year TC: 240k
Yoe: 4

    Aren't those questions supposed to be asked in the interview?

      OP
      I’m sorry, What was I thinking getting opinions from a third party platform from people who might have worked there before or have heard about it, or wait, people who are current employees willing to give some insights due to the anonymity of the app.
      Thanks for the tip!

      That makes these questions in interview unnecessary.

    WLB generally depends on the organization.. which org are you joining? I might be able to give feedback if I know people from that org

      I don’t know anyone from Logistics but from what I heard WLB should be okay

      No problem. Thanks!

      Can you also comment on the office amenities, food options and any commuter benefits (public and car)?

      Well there are really no office amenities (welcome to amazon:) you have to pay for everything.. there are cafeterias in SJC10,SJC11 and SJC14. There are 2 gyms available on campus..I do not have much idea about commuter benefit but there are shuttles available

      OP
      Lol okay. By office amenities I meant like nice office layouts, with break rooms and snacks, coffee, beverages (free hopefully), and some game stuff like ping pong and foosball.
      Have my expectations set on not expecting a bar and a massage center in the workplace.
      Thanks for the response though. :)

    Workplace is improving with a couple of new buildings. Cubicles are nice if you are into cubicles vs open space. Cafeteria is good, really good. You have to pay for it though. Parking is good too. WLB depends on your organization. Benefits are Amazon benefits, nothing different (except maybe some minor things) comparing to other California offices.

    OP, I have a friend working there and the inside scoop is that most organizations there are absolute sweatshops. You will learn a lot but be prepared for the hard grind. Stay away if wlb is important to you.
