    Pros

    * Engineers are valued. A lot of focus on giving Engineers the work that is challenging.
    * Good technological challenges. A lot of interesting problems in the AWS space which are challenging and need creativity.
    * High impact work. A lot of customers use AWS, and hence the impact is visible in terms of usage, growth, customer feedback.

    Cons

    * Design is owned by Principal Engineers. Sometimes it is hard to get the opportunity to design a system as it is owned by Principal Engineers.
    * Oncall duty can be bad on some teams. But it is ok for some teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Focus on operational pain reduction as much as new features..
