Current Employee - Security Operations Center Analyst (SOC)

I have been working at Amazon full-time

Pros

The best on-boarding. Good work environment. Friendly and helpful colleagues. Awesome work culture in the office. The company helps you develop. There's is always growth not just in the... company but the employees too.

I don't see any cons... I always think and see positive. I think, it's up to the person they see things... if they see it as negative or a challenge.
