Work / life balance at Amazon?! Hahahahhaa!! That’s a good one 😂🤣

Sort of like ByteDance. Many of their people work 6 days a week

Depends on the team. Almost certainly better than investment banking, but on average substantially worse than other FAANG. Between 45-80 hours a week is what I've hear from peers.

I am not close enough to Amazon to know the specifics. Don't believe all the blanket Amazon hate, but they gained that generally negative reputation in tech for a good reason. My view is that their hiring bar is lower, they pip and fire at a much higher rate, they're less cushy than almost all major tech (like a Walmart mentality with Google on the opposite side of spectrum), and are working on hard problems. It's definitely a good opportunity and worth serious consideration
