    Pros

    The people are fantastic. Fast moving and open environment. The company caters to its SDEs and knows that they are where the rubber meets the road. Close work with the business to understand their needs and the customer's needs. Everyone is moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance sucks in some groups. The worst part is if you get stuck under a manager who has NO idea what leadership and management really is. Amazon is full of AWFUL managers. That is slowly improving, but not quickly. Most managers still treat the employees more like a liability than an asset.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the Dev Managers. Some are fantastic and are focused on growing the people and the teams. Others are still stuck in micromanaging their teams and trying to make themselves succeed instead of their teams.

    Pros

    Challenging. Work with smart people. Lots of data to check yourself on decisions.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Leadership is based on favoritism. Strong women are not tolerated and the white male is the rule in product management. Not a lot of diversity in thought. It is sad.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leaders who understand leadership. Choose more women in higher profile roles.
