Feeling exhausted and stressed out by all the priority changing, tight deadlines, short on staff. Everyone is stretching, we miss the deadline daily. My health also got affected.

Is this normal on a development team across AWS?

    By hearing all other stories about AWS and especially Amazon, this sounds normal to me. But try not to end up on the opposite side of the blame game.

    Why overcommit and miss deadlines consistently? Isn't there a commit and deliver thing in LPs. What's with this squeezing at Amazon?
