Amazon Prime vs AWS Commerce

I have to choose between Amazon Prime team vs AWS Commerce team. Although I am leaning towards AWS Commerce, I am cautious about the AWS org in general due to rumours/facts about that org being too stressful to work with.

    Team or company no longer matters. That’s the new reality.

    Meet and discuss day2day with immediate team members and the leadership team. Then go with the one that gives you a better feel.

      It's team dependent like any other company. I consistently work less than 40 hrs a week

      Also if a manager consistently bleeds employees, he will be let go.

      I spoke with the AWS manager on what the team does. He spoke about all the good stuff that they do, and his bias is justified. He mentioned that his team doesn't have high operational related work like other AWS teams, so the WLB is good.

      Haha. It's the same 10% discount on certain Amazon products that all employees get.

      Deals with generating bills, invoices, payment. They are trying to improve the customer experience with buying AWS stuff. They will be rewriting certain services and UI.

    Prime is moving to Bellevue, just another data point.
