Pros

Smart peers, Good pay, Freedom and ownership. Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

Cons

Work-life balance No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

Advice to Management

Think more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )
