    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time

    Pros

    - Get to work on cool innovative products, especially in the smart home space. It’s really cutting edge stuff and you see customers use it.
    - The culture here really depends on your team, in my case it’s good. Oncall isn’t crazy.
    - The gym onsite is pretty sweet.

    Cons

    - Commuter services could be better
    - A little too frugal. Kind of sad going to an event that provides snacks that are gone within 5 minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more generous to your employees. Pay them well for good work.
