I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people to work with, some of the smartest in the industry. Cool products to work on. Casual dress code. Work hours are flexible. Pay is very good. Cupertino location is also great.

Cons

No work/life balance, most people are married to their jobs and neglect their families. Expected to travel to China approximately every two months, very poor working conditions there. Employees aren't appreciated or rewarded well for extra time put in. Career path is up to you...which means they provide no guidance. Bezos wants to be Steve Jobs but doesn't understand HW development.

Advice to Management

Grow your employees, stop putting the absolute minimum people on a project.
