How was the interview process?
Creative space and support?
How different from past experiences?
You’ll learn a lot about cloud. Close exposure to phenomenal engineers. Witness the creation of some awesome technology, and possibly influence (not likely)
Terrible design system
Extremely bureaucratic and tedious
Shaky support for UX
Weak design managers, many of whom are just failed engineers
Space & support:
None to speak of. I found the AWS design community to be boring. Not nearly as engaged as it used to be, and it didn’t used to be all that great to begin with. Never felt a lot of passion for the work, or for doing great design.
Where are you now and who else are you talking to? I would rank this bottom of your list, unless you’re just really wanting to learn cloud. I came into AWS with reasonably high hopes and find it increasingly frustrating.
