Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Amazon Lab126 full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Really interesting projects, motivated and clever people. Strong 360 degree feedback culture which encourages collaboration. Lots of encouragement to work on new ideas and technologies.... Great support for diversity and inclusion - better than any other engineering firm I've worked at.

Cons

Continuous arguments over properly resourcing projects, instead expecting teams to pick up the slack (there is no slack). This leads to my next point: Some of the products are really not great... quality and it's hard to feel proud of them. Too much bureaucracy building up in an organization which used to encourage new ideas and risk-taking. Metrics around people management that can be used in cruel and nonsensical ways to force good people out.

Advice to Management

Don't just talk about day 2 culture - do something about it. Stop demanding attrition metrics get hit when we're trying to hold the teams together.
