Listen bro, I know the inside of those offices care for me to describe them to you? My spouse worked there I told her to quit because they wouldn’t even allow her to take one rotten day off to be with us on Christmas Day.This is so wrong in so many ways that I'm having difficulty figuring out where to even begin. There is a very healthy work/life balance at Amazon, all the people I've interacted with care very much about each other. Engineers are encouraged to decide upon which work they want to undertake and they are mostly in control of their work/life balance. There are realistic expectations set on delivery, not the "death marches" which I've experienced at other companies.
It seems to me that you don't actually know how things operate inside the Cape Town AWS engineering office, as what you've said so far is very far from the truth
Amazon and Google, two of the companies I will never work for, ever.
