Can you post something positive about working for Amazon?Dec 5, 2018
I'm going to Seattle next week for interviews with Amazon. I don't know which team as it's a recruiting event. I am trying to motivate myself to prepare but every post on here about Amazon is negative. Are there any advantages to working there? (Example : tough it out for 1 year then you have a lot more opportunities to go to a better company). Please share positive reasons to work there.
For my part, i have applied because i live in a small town and have very few career choices locally. I'm not super thrilled about relocating but i hope that it's an investment into my future and that I'll have access to learning and other better companies in Seattle.

- Just the sheer experience of building at scale and understand how to react to changing technology and business landscape in a nimble yet effective manner is something you will not learn in any other FAANG company sans Amazon. Why you ask? Cause Amazon simultaneously invests in som many divergent business spaces that opportunities to learn are endless
If you get it, take it, it will be be quite a learning experience for you. Off all the companies I have worked at, I learnt the most at Amazon
