Overall there are good benefits, but the culture differs from department to department.

Great place to work - truly - but not for the faint-of-heart. There is a Genuine desire to engage diversity. Militant feminism is not required, but backbone and willingness to be comfortable in self-advocating is needed and expected.

    Ownership is promoted and supported. If something is needed, it is expected for resources to speak up to self-advocate. This is an honored process, but not one that can be challenging for females to engage.

    Amazon has always been very flexible (in my experience) with time needed off of work.

    Maybe. Amazon was great for my first 4 years in middle management. However, breaking through the glass ceiling into upper management has been challenging to say the least.

Be confident in your ability to handle and navigate workplace politics. Be adaptable to change. Speak up early and loudly, otherwise risk being walked on and/or left behind. If you feel as though you're being bullied by your boss, look for another team or another job as soon as possible because HR rarely stands by those being bullied.

    It completely depends on the team and manager. However, teams and managers are constantly in transition. It's possible that a person might be hired by one manager but reorganized another manager within a few weeks of their start date.

    Implement an anti-bullying policy, clarify and simplify reporting pipelines, as well as have a better understanding of team morale at the hands of a bullying boss.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It would depend on the team. I've heard some teams are supportive where others fall incredibly short. I would only recommend people to Amazon if they were prepared to have a tough run; but also, are very confident in their ability to navigate politics.

Beware of the stress-level and backhanded expectations. People are encouraged to give unsolicited feedback to people's managers.

Lots of opportunities, lots of women in key leadership positions, lots of integrity of workplace culture. Pay is low for everyone at the low paid positions, it is nothing pesonal or gemder specific.

    Really good about taking time off, with generous PTO package from day one.

    You can use your PTO/vacation if you wish, or take unpaid leave as long as you need. Really good about that.

    Better and more standardized training so people are able to hit productivity metrics without undue injury and burnout, thus leading to increase from appalling 90+% 3 month turnover rate and freeing up money to give us a raise from the appallingly low pay. Thus incresing retention and freeing up more money for raises.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. My division in the warehouse is extremely physical and the pay is more like an internship than anywhere close tona livelihood. Great opportunities, if you can survive the brutal workload and low, low pay.
