    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Passionate and intelligent team, ability to work on something that directly impacts teachers and students. Connection to larger Amazon as a whole opens many doors for other career opportunities. Culture of colleagues is very supportive. Excellent work life balance.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor cross-functional communication, lack of clear planning -- constantly in a state of disorganization to "test" and quickly pivot to see what's working. Much work you do is constantly thrown out to move in another direction. Morale low from mid-level management and below in work motivation from reorg of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    More cross-functional communication and clearer leadership. Choose a direction to move in and stick with it.
