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

    Pros

    Meet some great people, learn to operate in chaos/firefighting mode most of the time.

    Cons

    Politics, poor management, lack of clear processes for the size of the company. Conservative products; company doesn't value innovative design. Poor support structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your company goals and get the right people in place to get it done. Get rid of poor performers. Treat your people right.

    Pros

    The engineers are dedicated to their jobs and the company has few very smart people but unfortunately, they are not recognized. If you really enjoyed your high school experience and would like to re-live it, join Lab126!

    Cons

    I've had the worst manager at this company - out of all the jobs I've had!. She is extremely incompetent, emotional, has a lot of personal issues and has no idea how to manage. The only way she's keeping her job is by brown-nosing her manager who is also totally incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to hire a trainer to train managers and weed out bad managers. There's a high attrition rate because of these incompetent managers
