Is the chatter about bad culture and wlb at Amazon really true? I know it depends on the team, what could be some good teams / areas to be in for better wlb? How bad is the culture?

I’m sure there are areas with good teams with good wlb. Their talent level is also very high.

Those being said, bad culture / wlb is a deserved reputation at least relative to other tech firms. This includes their cloud business which I have the most contact with.

like

Culture - general tech >>> amazon retail >> ad tech >> AWS (I’m in the retail org)

AWS is not the worst lol

Yep, but if you work in consulting it shouldn't be anything new, lol

My WLB now is pretty chill actually lol. Any idea how many hours per week these ppl work? I’m goin for a BIE role if that helps

Would ad finance be considered in ad tech? I’m interviewing for a role within Ad finance I hope it’s not that bad 😩

Anyone knows how bad or good supply chain is? Specifically transportation.

Well it’s really variable. Some teams are great and some are terrible. In general, retail tends to be better than the other orgs in terms of wlb BUT promotion cycles are longer since it’s that easy come out with an amazing new product

Ad finance is fine - the finance org has a very different wlb compared to engineering

Ty you just made my morning. Have a splendid day! 😇

Tech Stack: Mobile Application Development

I recently started my first post-college job as a software developer and have to make a decision pretty soon: front-end development or back-end development. I really like being closer to the user and the creativity as far as front-end. But I also reallly really enjoy math and logic and the more complex side to back-end. My dream would be to do full stack but thats not an option. Scared of getting pigeon holed. Any suggestions as to what to do / tips?

Anxiety before your sales demos?

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

1. Know the product inside out - it will take time for you to gain confidence in your sales abilities but if you know the product will you’ll be more confident in that domain.

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.
