    Pros

    Amazon stock if you are fortunate enough to survive three+ years

    Cons

    Pure politics. Laughable product design flow. Constant project resets. Any innovation is stifled by management. Focus is on management of large teams that don't execute. No patent bonus award. Backloaded RSU structure which many people are forced to quit before vesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the OLR processes, it is only breeding political agendas. Take risks and stop maintaining the status quo.
