      It is worth working at Amazon long enough to "graduate" with a PIVOT offer. Every other employer knows how many top quality engineers Amazon fires every year.

      Amazon:
      * good, not great initial offer. Hint, negotiate your offer. But you will notice a huge financial cliff at the end of 4 years, which I am almost at the end of the run way.

      * benefits suck...seriously, I got way better benefits at startups I did before this job.

      * people just depend, I have run into smart ones and dumb ones. Good teams with low ops and ones that suck the life out of you.

      * most good middle mangers (L7’s & L8’s) don’t last long. Most take their 4 years of stock and run. What that means is that rarely do good directors make their way to VP and cause the change that is required to u nfuck this company.

    I was sure Amazon will win here. If you make for best, Google will win.
    Blind being blind.

      Blind can be inclined, but this doesn't make working at Amazon better.

  • Amazon K?
    The poll is biased because of the large number of Amazon employees on blind. Of course amazon employees will select amazon

      Not sure you help your own case by saying that. I am with Microsoft and wouldn’t call it the worst company I ever worked for.

    • Microsoft disproves this argument, they have similar blind population and msft is pretty low on the rank.

    Government, full of dead weight, unmotivated paper pushers who just delay, delay, delay. There are positions there that should not be positions at all.

    There was a guy that got 6 figure salary to just lock/unlock a room due to clearance. Worst yet, another position had to take inventory for that room once a month, that's it!! Yet they complain their job is difficult.

    Bunch of the engineers are so protective of their work that collaboration with other teams are like pulling teeth. Engineers are so outdated both on the tools and technique side. Got into so many discussions that lead to no where trying to convince these morons on some of the most basic trival shit that other organizations wouldn't need a meeting for.

    Our tax paper dollars are being put to good use. Definition of socialism.

    • And yet most blinders want the government to run everything, including their health care

      A lot of people don't understand how government is so destructive.

    Why no gaming companies?

    • Man, Thank God my friend talked me out of it. I wanted to be a VR Game Dev.
      Although healthcare is no better. 90% of the people company have no idea what we are doing. They just use the apps and complain non-stop if there is a bug.

      Let's be honest. I don't know how AAA got that bad reputation of crunch, maybe it was in the last decade. But for the past 3 years, that seems to be false. I've worked with top tier tech companies and AAA (not just UBI). My AAA gig have been comparatively more relaxed. It's the qc & design team that's working hard for the most part.

      Wait so work life balance is awful and people are always trying to get ahead of you in Amazon? What other cons are there?

    • Amazon ZaYx69
      It's one thing if you're fighting for a promotion to "get ahead", it's another to fight to keep your job, esp with other folks being sole income earners etc

    This Poll is flawed.

    It will automatically skew towards the companies with most employees on Blind.

    • Microsoft / Eng TC_Hoe
      Microsoft has highest number of employees on blind
