- Am i on pip? So just had one of those 1:1 meetings with manager a few days ago. He mentioned he is a little concerned on my performance in terms of low code commit, and a few LP i lack. He is now assigning me ownership of a new project in 2019 to prove myself in Q1. What does it mean? Ami being put on pip? Im re
- Amazon is #1 company in the world Long-term (career-wise), it seems that Amazon is a better place to grow compared to Google/Facebook/Netflix. I agree that work conditions are better in those companies, short-term. But if someone is a 10x engineer and has excellent social skills, the overall impact one can have at Amazon is IMO high
- Amazon hate.. millennials want it too easy! Amazon is a great company to work for. Across the board great innovation and good amount of ownership on tech and non tech side. The culture is a bit aggressive but if you survive you basically are an asset for most companies in the world. I have heard way too many people complain about lack of per

- Career of a less-than-mediocre and unmotivated software engineer I'm a less than mediocre engineer in Amazon with TC ~150000 with 8 years experience. I never feel talented or strongly interested in software engineering, or engineering in general. I just memorized the questions, cracked the interviews and did the minimum to complete the tasks. I didn't develop in

- Polling former Amazon SDMs I’m a L7 SDM in AWS. I’ve been at Amazon 10 years and honestly love huge parts of the culture: the data driven attitude, moving fast, anyone-does-any-job mentality. However, I’m just not having fun anymore. My org is stacked with Microsofties and we’re moving so slow. Spending more time in meetings
- Getting promoted at AWS? Non-tech worker here. In my current role, I have 2.5 years tenure with my company, plenty of seniority and am highly respected throughout the organization (small company, less than 500 employees). Think "big fish, small pond." In total, I have 6+ years of experience in my trade with a recent master'
- Amazon product managers Amazon product managers, can you share your experience of what it’s like working there? Interested in all insight but particularly at the principal and higher level for product focused PM technical roles (no so much TPM).

- Amazon Managers: Why do you ignore internals who enquire about your open jobs? What is the deal with managers who post jobs and then ignore internals who reach out to discuss? Isn't this supposed to be a big advantage of working at Amazon, and often, a big advantage for the HM? How about some ownership? I tend to be so much less interested in that job and working for that lazy
- Need motivation to change job Currently sde2 at Amazon (TC 250). Have been here for close to 18 months.

- Qualtrics Ex-Big 4 Engineers Interviewed at Qualtrics Seattle recently; met a decent number of engineers from Amazon and MS (who were still mid-late 20s).
