Which team would be better to join?

Amazon Prime Video in Santa Monica or Amazon Alexa in Irvine?

- Career growth?
- WLB/Team culture?
- Office?
- Tech Stacks?

Got an offer as a SDE1 and request SoCal role to be close to long term partner in LA. Moving from Sydney, Australia.

    Prime Video is a dumpster fire. Don’t know about Alexa.

      If you are in AMZN, go lookup the internal blind threads for Prime Video.

      Is there anything you could share as it is the best location for me so would like to know why to avoid it or if one mans trash is another mans treasure

      Prime Video is a horrible org to work with. The most miserable people/teams I have had to interact with. Don't give a shit about creating value for customers, don't care about internal customers/partner teams, try to extort HC and resources for privilege of calling their services. Very non Amazonian.

    I’ve worked in Santa Monica before (not at Amazon) and I miss it. Not sure about the team you’re asking about but as far as the city goes, Santa Monica is awesome. You’re close to the beach, lots of stuff to do, good looking people, diversity.
