Make sure to listen to the under 2 minute video. Basically Lab126 is a failing effort on the whole for Amazon, low morale for it’s engineers, loss of senior talented engineer to Yahoo,, and a less than a good engineering focus for those who work there. This news and the recent NYT article about working at Amazon that it makes me so much happier that I took myself out of the running for an innovation management position earlier this year with a recruiter who came a calling via LinkedIn. Amazon needs to stick to it’s knitting, it doesn’t do engineering work very well without the full participation of engineers in a way that they want to be engineers, treating them like cogs in your machine isn’t an adequate work environment. Nuff said about that – Peace Out.
