Are all the horror stories about amazon true for both retail and AWS? I’m going to be joining amazon soon and I’m kinda scared after reading all the posts here.

    Oracle is walk in the park.

    Amazon is Hunger Games.

    My retail team is relaxed and not toxic. Welcome to Amazon, OP!

    Certain teams maybe lot of teams are stressful. You’d be lucky if you get a good one.

    My org within AWS does not match the horror stories I have read. I believe there are certain pockets (Alexa) where the culture just sucks. A lot of AWS seems better. At least in my opinion.

      On call pressure is brutal in most AWS teams.
