I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time

Pros

- an opportunity to define the cutting-edge of technology
- small teams, complete ownership of large parts of a project
- solid accountability at all levels
- the best part - helpful and kind people

Cons

I wish there was free food - a la Google or Facebook.
Also, if the shuttle service could extend to people in an around the Bay Area/Peninsula (not just San Franciso and Morgan Hill) it would resolve most of the parking woes at the Cupertino offices.

Advice to Management

Please give Lab126 merchandise to your employees (at least sometimes), so that they can wear it with pride

    I worked at Amazon Lab126 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative products, lots of freedom, good work life balance for the most part of the year.
    Good benefits. Better pay/RSU and faster career growth compared to rest of amazon.com companies.

    Cons

    Did not find much opportunity for mentoring or getting mentored. Some part of the workforce will make you wonder how they got hired.

    Advice to Management

    maintain a good uniform hiring bar; provide more guidance on career opportunites for employees in 1:1s.
