    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon Lab126 full-time

    Pros

    You work with some very smart people who genuinely care a lot about the product, the pay is good, and even though some rules sound fairly strict (smart casual dress code for example), if you get your job done, people don't care. Hackathons were also a great chance to experiment with the Kindle.

    Cons

    Very political - there were tensions within my group, and to get things done you really had to get people on your side on the exec level. Often needed to get approval before I could go ahead and do things.
