An Amazon Programmer’s Perspective

This is absolutely horrifying. Some quotes:

You are on 24/7 pager duty during your on-call

Remember when I mentioned Amazon’s moving and signing bonus? Little caveat on that, if you leave or are fired within 2 years, you have to pay it back.

I rigorously prioritized self-care by leaving work at 8 hours in, on the dot.

It’s your professional obligation to push back on unreasonable expectations. Your bosses may not like it at first, but they will respect you for it.
