    I worked at Amazon Lab126 as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some very interesting projects being worked on at lab and there are plenty of intelligent engineers.

    Cons

    Your satisfaction can depend heavily on which team you are on. Some teams just are not managed well and conflicts are bound to happen. In addition, since lab is a subsidiary of Amazon, some decisions can conflict with one or more of the many teams in the Amazon ecosystem.

    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some of the smartest in the industry. Cool products to work on. Casual dress code. Work hours are flexible. Pay is very good. Cupertino location is also great.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, most people are married to their jobs and neglect their families. Expected to travel to China approximately every two months, very poor working conditions there. Employees aren't appreciated or rewarded well for extra time put in. Career path is up to you...which means they provide no guidance. Bezos wants to be Steve Jobs but doesn't understand HW development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your employees, stop putting the absolute minimum people on a project.
