    Pros

    Work is challenging, the opportunity is real and impact people are having is huge. Many good technologies to master to solve big data, large scale problems. Camaraderie among many teams.

    Cons

    Marc Lore does not get what engineering is for. He'd rather everything was outsourced to agencies. Engineers are too much trouble, they always tell you about things you can not do and they have 100s of reasons why. He wants everything to be simple and nobody on Jet exec team wants to sweat out the details. Coming from "somebody buy us out, please!" attitude that worked for him few times in a row, "build to last" is antagonistic to his "get rich quick" approach.

    Advice to Management

    wait and see
