Could you please share your positive experience?
The general idea I get on reading blind posts here about Amazon is really poor. Almost nobody seems to be happy with the team and people around, and the frugality in terms of perks. Is the attrition rate in the first year really 94%?
Did you have offers from other companies that you rejected for Amazon?
Also, I see on Glassdoor that the rating for East Palo Alto office is higher than the other offices. Any truth to it, or just lesser data?
TC : 0 and YOE : 0
With that said, you are correct in that amazon is very "frupid" (so frugal it's stupid). This affects the entire company. And is something that is quite annoying. Some key examples: no free food or drinks, terrible 401(k) matching, you have to pay to park in the building.
My advice, if you're considering amazon, is to tough it out on the first team you get placed on. Do your research on good teams to join, and switch soon after. Good luck!
