    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -Very bright technical people to work with.
    -Fast paced, energetic
    -Projects that matter and have impact

    Cons

    -Some departments have business wing assuming the role of little bosses.
    -Business jobs have least amount of work and they take all credit for successes
    -Business will throw blame of any failure on Technical

    Advice to Management

    It is technology that drives your business. Not the talkative product managers who throw blame around and take credit. Learn to appreciate your technical resources more and respect them. Downsize the bloated Product Management as their contribution can easily be replaced by others at Amazon
