I've loved my job, but I see how hard it can be working at Amazon as a woman and as a regular person with kids. Boundaries are important, but Amazon likes to recruit people who want to be successful more then they want to have good boundaries, so it can really drain people.

Being a technology company, employees and managers are naturally men-heavy. Given how smart the employees are, it's surprising there isn't more structural support for (new) moms. For starters, they need to catch up on giving more generous maternity (and paternity) leave. They should also take tips from moms and turn them into standard expectations/ policies: returning/ starting with part-time work after maternity leave, having a new mom mentor, etc.

Hard work with few benefits. Great for the childless or people who can do the hours- there's no explicit boys club. But work/life balance is hard and could hold you back. Maternity benefits very poor for industry (no paternity leave at all). No daycare benefits, 1 year wait lists.

    Maybe. Meritocracy, but the maternity benefits are very poor for the industry. Very difficult to just work 40-45 hrs/week

I think women get a fair shake with this company, I have seen many women rise through the ranks into management positions.

You work very hard. Work is very rewarding. Very male dominated and not comfortable with different leadership styles.

I see women at Amazon from front desk associates to Senior VPs (although there are far more men in high ranking roles than women over all, at least half of the senior leaders I support are women). Amazon is making leaps and bounds to increase diversity, especially in terms of adding female leaders to the tech work place. There are multiple teams dedicated to the recruitment of female employees and Amazon has set its goals high in terms of diverse hiring goals for the next few years. My work life balance has been wonderful so far (about 8 hours a day MAX) and I am constantly reading and partaking in in-depth discussions on the quality of life for women here in our Women @ Amazon affinity group and how to grow and improve. Amazon has even incorporated bias training into their interviewing practices so that every Hiring Manager and Interviewer considers subconscious biases they may have coming into the interview (an example would be women coming across as "abrasive" in an interview where as a man would come across as showing backbone) I would highly recommend the company to anyone, regardless of gender and feel women have the just as much opportunity for professional growth as men.

May not have the best work/life balance if trying to raise a family. Depends on your role.
