    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, lots of different types of roles and businesses, easy to move between roles.

    Cons

    Lots of movement so a lot of reinventing the wheel, compensation isn't great as it is fixed base once you are in and everything after is just stock (which has to vest again).

    Advice to Management

    Improve the compensation model, which is used globally but based on something that is only competitive in a few markets.

    Good benefits Better than average salary Well-known in the industry so looks good in the resume

    Cons

    Silo-ed structure Poor dev infrastructure Some products don't have good vision.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late to take any action now. It is impossible to change a 150000 people behemoth. So just focus on macro improvements.
