You need to be able to stand up for yourself, be willing to call out men for repeating your ideas, speak up at the table, figure out what you need to take a stand on and what you need to let slide, and be ready to work hard. Carefully vet the group you are going to and the manager and skip manager.

    It depends on which org you work for. Mine is very flexible; others are very much inflexible.

    Maybe. It depends on the job, the manager/org, the level and desire to be promoted (and at what speed), and how much backbone you have.

Try to do your job and stay out of the politics.

    They are flexible to a point. I knew another woman who had an anxiety attack and requested medical leave suggested by their Dr. and instead they ended up getting fired.

    Maybe. Its a good job but you have to be able to put up with childish coworkers and managers who still think they are in high school clicks and bullies.

Don't work here. Men tend to gang up on women who want to collaborate or share praise It is seen as weak and they use wo.en as scapegoats.

    Expected to work at least 70 hours a week. Admonished for taking any time and expected to respond at all hours.

    Reduce the "young boys club". Fitting into what they rho k a good employee looks like is very prevalent. Young, white males are praised. Fitting in to the clique is more important than delivering results. Challenge their group think paradigm.

    Really hard to give a figure as some teams are great at it and some are horrendous, with very long hours and strict rule

    Maybe. Varies a lot across different areas. I would not recommend the sales team I was in before, but I'm now in a tech team and it's much better

If you want to have a baby, great! The maternity leave is awesome (paid for five months). If you already have a family, or once you get back from leave, good luck! Don't expect any special treatment; your hours and travel won't change.

    Hours and travel are sometimes flexible, and at other times, non-negotiable. Great maternity leave, but don't expect to work less than 12 hour days during the week...and possibly weekends, too. Brutal environment.

    Amazon Media Group has a very flexible shceudle for their sales staff. Many hours are spent on the road traveling so there is time allowed to work from home.

Amazon has managers, so if you find a good one stick with him or her. Generally the company rewards leaders for business results even if they are not good people managers/leaders.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Terrible promotion process, this requires a ton of work on managers and most people that do get promote (esp. at higher levels) pretty much push their managers and manage the political process of gathering support. This does not help women get promoted at same rate, as most women will only push their managers to that extend when they are way overdue for promotions.

Find a mentor and find allies. We misuse a leadership principle (Earns Trust) as a crutch for calling women "demanding", "bitchy". we are aggressive not assertive.

    My team is flexible in terms of hours and if you need to work from home but that also goes the opposite way as in, they expect you to be available all the time and work crazy hours.

    Maybe. There are a ton of different teams at Amazon and some women have good experiences. I would encourage female applicants to network with Amazonians and ask a lot of questions about culture.

Be prepared to experience some low key, classic misogyny: getting interrputed by men, having to fight a little harder to be taken seriously, etc. If you can handle that, you will learn a lot. Also be prepared to be discouraged that there are virtually no women in director-level positions or above.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. As a human being, I would recommend working here. As a woman, I probably would not. The leadership of our team is entirely made up of men. Diversity is referred to as a "problem", not an area of opportunity. Women are frequently talked over, not taken as seriously as their male counterparts, and struggle to find opportunities to advance in their careers, despite having delivered on just as much as the men receiving promotions over them.
