    Con: Amazon would give you a 10% chance of being on dev list, and 6% chance of being on a PIP. That’s a 6% chance of an emotionally jarring event on your life.

      Development list, which you usually aren’t told about but your manager will be documenting your work and potentially preparing to put you in a pivot. At pivot you’ll have the option of leaving for severance, appealing the decision, or going on a PIP.

      Performance improvement plan. If you don’t meet the requirements set forth by your manager, you are then fired.

      Does Amazon give you any time to figure what you’ll do next? Or do they terminate people suddenly?

    Con: you'd lose your free checking account
    Pro: you get a 10% off to spend on items sold by amazon the first 1000.

    It is business as usual.
