Congrats. Good luck. If it's your first job you'll do just fine if you're mid career be prepared for a huge cultural shift depending where in Amazon. But it's encouraged to compete with each other - colleagues, departments and even products in a way I'd be probably incompatible with. It's definitely a successful model but it has shocked several of my current and former colleagues over the years.
Good luck finding housing. Market for buying has turned a corner but everything is crazy expensive - you can just be less worried about multiple bids and offer price. It's winter so there's not a lot on sale but much less insane than this time last year -
Rental is tough and expensive and winter doesn't help. Let us know what kind of neighborhood you're looking for.
