    Pros

    large interesting datasets, nice location, very competent engineers, flexible working hours, solid Amazon infrastructure, small company culture

    Cons

    limited space for career growth
    most of the product decisions are made in Seattle, feels a bit like technology outsourcing center

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give greater ability to A9 to start and run independent projects to leverage small company advantages. More collaboration with research community outside A9/Amazon
