Why In The FAANGs I Prefer Amazon

by Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer

From among the FAANG companies I like Amazon the most, just because I have always met Amazon folks in cool places I spend time.

I’ve had amazing conversations with Amazon people on Twitter. Even had a podcast with an engineering manager. One of the core contributors on one of my OpenSource projects is from Amazon. I took one amazing class and some of my classmates were from Amazon. I had great conversations with them on LinkedIn.

Amazon is often depicted as being somewhat toxic. The environment is harsh in terms of performance reviews. The people are industrious. People over there seem to be working twice as hard as at Google. They get bored when coming over.

But, they are very social people, like to make friends and jump on cool initiatives and help out. I like them a lot!
