Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

At a given point, there are many good engineers there to learn from. They typically leave within a year, but at least they're usually replaced by other good engineers.

Cons

The rest. Work/life balance, perks, management, office environment, operational load, etc., are all very bad. The office is crowded, loud, and I'm interrupted for status updates almost continuously. The operational load is unbearable on some teams that were unfortunate enough to inherit years of technical debt incurred by former engineers.

Advice to Management

Learn from what people are saying in their exit interviews - you have a lot of data points from those.
