    Inside the secret lab where Amazon is designing the future of reading

    Chris Green holds an envelope. At least, it looks like an envelope. In reality, it's a piece of office copy paper that's been cut and folded into the shape of a Kindle Voyage, the latest in Amazon's bestselling line of e-readers.

    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compared to Apple, work-life balance is much better. After moving to new campus, shuttle bus service is provided, which is great.

    Cons

    Big company but insurance package is disappointing... Laptop is heavy, the management does not really care about making engineers happy, but seems care much less about travel cost control...

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews. Followed by onsite interview. Prepare data structures thoroughly - heaps, trees, linkedlists. Get your string manipulations done too. They test out your problem solving technique. Besides whiteboard coding, they also asked about modeling an airport. One of the interviewers was more intent on stalling and interrupting me than listening to my solution. That was the only harrowing part of the interview.
