    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are all really smart and motivated to make a great product. The work environment is very pleasant.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like the upper management in my org meddles too much with our process - it feels like they don't think they are doing their jobs unless they keep giving us indirect orders. Limited perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing our processes - the more you tell us to change how we're working the slower our progress will be.

    Current Employee - Hardware Engineer in Cupertino, CA

    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time

    Pros

    - an opportunity to define the cutting-edge of technology
    - small teams, complete ownership of large parts of a project
    - solid accountability at all levels
    - the best part - helpful and kind people

    Cons

    I wish there was free food - a la Google or Facebook.
    Also, if the shuttle service could extend to people in an around the Bay Area/Peninsula (not just San Franciso and Morgan Hill) it would resolve most of the parking woes at the Cupertino offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give Lab126 merchandise to your employees (at least sometimes), so that they can wear it with pride
