Anything where safety or lives matter does not operate this way.
Right now I am back in school again working towards a PhD but I have worked with a biotech company and I have NEVER seen behavior even approaching this. If engineers where treated this way they would make mistakes and for many drugs you would not know about it until people started dieing. Then the FDA would investigate and find out why mistakes where made and the company would be SCREWED.
I can't imagine people doing this kind of working environment for drug development, building design, airplanes, materials etc.
Basically Amazon can only do this because what they do truly doesn't matter on a life critical kind of scale and they can afford to burn people out because there are so many to replace them. In many engineering fields unemployment is 1%. You can't burn through people because there is nobody to replace them with.
