I know it's a bit of a vague question... Any amazonians know if one is harder to get into vs the other?

    Neither are super hard to get into. The Santa Cruz office is substantially more chill and intimate but you’ll still work the long hours for an extremely subpar app.

      Nice I heard there are some cool ML teams there, are you on one of them? Also are there any better perks at the Santa Cruz location than Seattle?

      Perks are free snacks and soda. And like I said really chill office. If you work with SJC offices they are just right over the hill. And if you are on the SC side of the mtn it’s a really easy commute.

      Whoa, seriously? That sounds perfect, Santa Cruz + chill office + snacks, sounds perfect. Alexa seems cool. I'm working my ass off here at my team in Seattle (AWS), thinking of a switch. Do they do any serious work at SC, or is it just some startup Amazon acquired? How's the growth opportunities? Wanna know if it's worth transferring to
