Good internship experience, received a generous full-time offer, but didn't accept it

Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsThe company as a whole is doing really cool things, and everyone genuinely cares about giving customers the best possible value. Lab126 employees get to work on next generation Kindle hardware and software, so it's really cool to get an inside look at the Kindle family product pipeline.

ConsCompany culture is a bit lacking. High levels of security mostly prevent any inter-team mingling, so you end up spending time with just your team. They also heavily enforce non-disclosure policies since they often have contractors working for them, so this means you might not be allowed to know what the person a few cubicles away is working on.
