Amazon workers keep busy in Cambridge. But what are they working on ? - Business - The Boston Globe

An Amazon mystery in Cambridge
"The Amazon name has allure; the Seattle e-commerce giant hired at least 80 people for its Cambridge research-and-development office in 2012, according to several employees who have since moved on. (Amazon also owns Kiva Systems Inc. of North Reading, a maker of warehouse robots it bought last year for $775 million.)
But how’s this for secretive? Current and former employees are forbidden from talking about what happens at the Cambridge office, and the company won’t even tell prospective employees what they’d be working on, if hired. In fact, according to my sources, Amazon employees on two teams in Cambridge can’t even tell each other what they’re up to."
