    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on. Will be working with hard-working and smart people. Great pay.

    Cons

    No room for individualism. Can get very pigeon-holed. Short sided in the sense that cost drives most - to all design considerations.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced development environment with lots of experimentation. New areas are regularly explored/tested and developers are tasked with going beyond their comfort zones. Coding isn't the only thing you do -- you must be able to design new systems/services with an eye towards the future and you'll have rigorous reviews by peers on the design as well as management that is unfamiliar with it.

    Cons

    You will be pushed. Deadlines are often arbitrary and any change in the movement needs to be researched and conferred. Nothing is cheap or free (even subsidized). The cafeteria food is okay but quickly wears on you. Not many perks. Work-life balance is dependent on your own life decisions as well as whether you are on a team that has extremely Ops requirements. The level of camaraderie depends on whether you are on a team that has this kind of extra work support.
