    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Company 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to encourage better social interactions within the company

    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.
