    Pros

    Teams focus on real customer problems. Amazon allows engineers to do the right thing by focusing on the customer problems. Teams can work independently without many dependencies across the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is a lot of work to keep a service running and it can be stressful. Team can however address this itself, so you can't really blame company if you didn't do good work in building your service.
