"Amazon was everything I had ever dreamed of as a hobbyist who found his way into the big-time. It was a slice of pie and dreams that I had always wished for in a job; until I was dropped like a rock. Washington is an at-will state for employees but, I had absolutely no indication that I was to be terminated and I was told over the phone by my recruiter versus my boss. To say the least, I am very sad that they let me go because I was contributing a lot of changes to our main code branch."
