I got an offer to work as a software engineer at Amazon, figure I'd ask here in case people have worked there in the past / currently work there. Trust me I've heard/read a lot of horror stories, but I also know some of it might be overblown based on how big the company is. Would love to hear any experiences, since TKP is one of the most reasonable internet forums I frequent.
Also in that vein, does anyone live/has lived in Seattle? What neighborhoods would be good for someone looking for a quiet place but also accessible to restaurants, coffee shops and things like that? I'm bringing my car, but ideally would like to minimize it's use as much as possible. Ideally I'd be able to walk to work, but I know that's going to limit my choice a little bit.
