Why do people bash Amazon engineering?
I gave aws interview two days ago. I make less than an average Amazon sde. I thought the people were very nice and the interviewers probed me deeply into the questions I answered. Everyone seemed very smart. They may be frugal but I am sure they have world class engineers and are obviously killing it in the cloud business. I just feel it's just creates a false sense of insecurity among Amazon employees leading them to believe that they are not very good, but from my perspective they have a wonderful sandbox to play in where they can really change the world.
