Is Amazon really a sweat shop?

Google doesn't execute worth shit. It works great for my wlb, but I'm bored. Interviewing with Amazon, but people on here make it out to be shitty and there's the meme of Amazon being a burn out company. What's really the story.

    Google doesn't execute worth shit? Come on, that's not fair. If Google didn't execute, it wouldn't have launched like 8 chat apps in the past 5 years!

      Rust? Can we chat via DM? I’d like to pick your mind a bit regarding your role and execution.

    It's team dependent. Honestly 1/4 tech teams at Amazon are amazing, 2/4 are pretty good places to work, but 1/4 are elite raging dumpster fires. Our public image comes from the last group but it's actually not most people's experience (but really is some people's).

    Just don't work for anyone named Abhoy and you should be fine.

    Yes. Look at their stock vesting for the first 2 years. No annual bonus or good salary hikes. 401k vests only after 3 yrs

    No WLB. If you are in AWS forget about life outside work.
    Shitty work culture!

      Our comp is way higher than Oracle, and while it's lower than Google/Facebook, in the past few years stock growth has pushed many Amazonians comp even above what peers there made.

      We're the second from top rung of the ladder, after Facebook and Google, Oracle is near the bottom.

      Lol. Heard of OCI? I have worked at Amazon in the past. So go throw mud on some one else.

      Also, no reason for OP to move from G to 🍌 land.

      Get your ego and insecurity checked up.

    Totally depends on the team. Some teams have terrible WLB and others are great (My partner goes in at 10, leaves by 4, and never has to bring work home)
