November 2017
Financial Analyst in Hyderabad:

February 2018
Fast-paced churn and burn culture.
Financial Analyst in Seattle:
Pros: Learn a ton as a finance analyst. Be prepared to get your hands dirty with SQL and other "business analyst" type responsibilities. Have a crazy amount of ownership. (Almost) everyone you work with is smart.
Cons: It's impressive if you make it past a year as a finance analyst at Amazon. Most people that make it past a year at the company move on to roles outside of finance. Management can totally make or break the job. Be prepared to work 50-60 hours regularly in the "slow season" and 70 hours when things pick up. Compensation is tied up in RSUs so there's a good chance you'll be underpaid seeing as most people never see their stocks vest due to the high turnover rate. People really do cry at their desks. Unrelenting stress and deadlines.
