I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good base pay, good hiring bonus

Cons

Lousy health benefits, big company trying to operate in start up mode with no sense of direction.

Advice to Management

Get your house in order. You shouldn't have to send 30 people to China for every product build.

    I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are lots of good places to eat in Cupertino but now they are moving to a wasteland near Moffet and Highway 101. Good play for n00b college kids that don't know any better.

    Cons

    Most people quit within one year of employment.. The RSUs are back-loaded to 80% of the vesting in years 3 and 4. Nobody can actually last that long in this turd company so they just find a better job and quit. Agree with other comments here about politics, toxic culture and poor benefits. I will take the next job out of here as will many others.

    Advice to Management

    I'd give you some advice but you would not listen to any of it.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits
    Excessive and pointless travel
    Company thrives on POLITICS
    POLITICS more important than product development

    Waste huge amounts of money on me too products which get sold at a loss
    There is nothing innovative about this place, who are they trying to fool?
    Toxic culture

    Advice to Management

    Sit around collect your RSUs, what do you care?
