Next week, I will be celebrating 4 months with AWS - Amazon Web Services. As I reflect on my journey so far, this continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. It is really inspiring how we Amazonians continue to hold each other accountable for demonstrating the Leadership Principles through our actions every day. If you are not familiar with the Amazon Leadership Principles, they describe how Amazon does business, how leaders lead, and we keep the customer at the center of decisions.

So how is it so far?

Before, I answer this, the observations below are through the lens of my personal experience and only represent my opinion and not Amazon’s.

Thank you for all those who made this journey exciting from the start. I am really looking forward to a bright future here with AWS.
