I took Maternity Leaves 2 times. Both time I felt forced to come back immediately after 8 weeks of paid leave otherwise. Work/Life Balance doesn't exist. Find a good boss who understands your situation is a key but this company moves very quickly and frequent reorgs make it hard to stick to one boss you like and finally found.
I'm able to balance the workload by taking a job that is below my ability. I get paid well enough but know I could be doing more somewhere else. Look at the gender of execs and the board -- all men. Nuff said.
THis is an amazing place to work. I have worked here for almost a year and i am still excited about work as the first day i started working for Amazon. Everyone is always friendly and if ou have a concern and go to management they handle it asap I love working for this company and it has alot of perks that go with working there as well get a job there you wont regret it
It's a very cut-throat environment that doesn't have a lot of benefits. I've seen many men and women alike put in their all, and get thanked with a raise as small as 1%. The good ones are lucky to get a raise of 4%. This is a company for people who just love working hard for the sake of working hard. There is very little personal development or return on good work. You really have to fight, kick, and scream for any promotions/raises.
