    My interviewer had asked, "How comfortable are you with micro managing?". I decided not to go for the onsite.

      LoL. I thought the stupid LP stuff was the bar.

      LP’s are not stupid, they are core to how many of us are empowered to operate as leaders at every level without being a manager. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea to get it or like it, but it ain’t stupid.

      @XOXO Bad question to ask, sometimes unintentional due to interpretation of words in different cultures. To give benefit of doubt probably was a trick question to find out LP’s and if you stood ground for what you believed is right for the customer etc. I do not know the context of the question or interview as well as You, but micro managers exist everywhere; it’s not just an Amazon thing. Luckily I’ve never had micro managers

    So many different orgs at Lab126 and none of them are same culture wise or WLB. Just avoid FireOS and FireTV organizations if you are into software side, all the folks who did shit left for other orgs, it’s mostly upkeep of products and inventing projects to justify their existence.

    There is definitely a lack of soul, from what I can tell after interviewing with Alexa. People were monotonous as shit. Can't tell about other things.

    Not a hardware centric company, don’t join if you have other options.
