    Cons

    Upwards mobility can be limited. Especially levels Director and higher have been filled by outside talent vs. building in paths for existing employees.
    Recruiting is a pain: it takes sooo much time away from people's day to day business, it's a real pain point.
    Employee recognition: some people go above and beyond and receive just a tap on the back and a 'thank you.' There should be more recognition, eg solid spot bonuses, etc. There are too few super talents that stick around, too many of them are leaving for facebook/google/etc.
    Innovation vs. excellence in basics: There's such a tremendous focus on innovation that some of the basics never get done right...
    Fire drill mentality is present in almost any company I've ever worked, but it feels like especially senior leadership is consumed mostly by fire drills here and it can be hard to get time.
    Location: An office in the city (NYC) would be a huge plus for employees commuting into Newark every day.
    Complexity: A lot of legacy code, structures and processes, especially due to many dependencies on Amazon policies/teams.
