To High Tech or Not to High Tech

There was a recent article in the New York Times that painted a pretty bleak picture of working at Amazon, followed by a ton of responses for and against what the article stated. Over the years, I have read quite a few of those articles and now that I am Seattle-based, I work in a high-tech company area.
