ProsInnovative products, lots of freedom, good work life balance for the most part of the year.
Good benefits. Better pay/RSU and faster career growth compared to rest of amazon.com companies.

ConsDid not find much opportunity for mentoring or getting mentored. Some part of the workforce will make you wonder how they got hired.

Advice to Senior Managementmaintain a good uniform hiring bar; provide more guidance on career opportunites for employees in 1:1s.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
