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.

  • Recommend to Women?

    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?

    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.

You have to have incredibly thick skin to work at Amazon. The environment is very stressful, the hours are long and demanding, especially during the last 4 months of the year due to the holiday shopping season which affects most of the company. The culture is not a friendly one, often times when you ask for help you will not receive it then you will get bad feedback for not being able to complete something that you never received training on.

You have to be very aggressive and protect your boundaries to spend time with your family. This will likely limit your ability to move up though.

Consider another employer unless you are willing to sacrifice work over family -there is little respect for family time off /a double standard for women at Amazon. It's a super hard environment in general but tougher if you are in senior roles and balancing a family. Be prepared to work 60 hour weeks.

Evaluate the team and the manager. If there is a team of only single male employees and the woman is a mother, then the challenges and schedules will be different. Choosing a team is just as important as an employeer choosing and employee.

    8 paid / 4 unpaid

    Maternity often means "mommy track". I was told that having kids would "remove me from being considered" a high achiever.
