Given how famous Amazon is for its frugality (read cheapness), are engineering employees sponsored for conferences attendance and given devices e.g. iPhones and android devices when they join?

    $50 a month for phones

    No it doesn't cover a phone bill but better than most jobs

      If you have to travel internationally, recommend using wifi only. I used the $10/day international day plan and had to get L8 approval for an extra $50 phone expense exception. Just go offline unless you can be on wifi.

      Where do u travel btw? Do software engineers get to travel internationally?

      I found that the best thing is to use a local sim or something like Google Fi just for international travel. Although Google Fi has the worst customer service

      OP
      Is there a limit to conference sponsorship? Do they sponsor more expensive conferences such as wwdc etc?

    In europe we get an iPhone 7 and SIM with pretty much flat everything. Works internationally too.
