There aren't any women in the senior leadership team. Roles that are overwhelming male (engineers) are often valued more than retail roles such as vendor managers, buyers, or program managers. Promotions are heavily weighted on vague leadership principles which tends to favor the Ol' Boy network. There is an active women@amazon elist where discussions of gender inequality are discussed. However, there seems to be very little done at the leadership level about the gender and racial disparities. Amazon is one of the few tech companies that won't release detailed breakdowns of male/female job titles and salaries, and there is a reason for that.
Male dominated - women there are supposed to adapt to doing the things the way men do vs being valued for their perspective.
Rapid growth, opportunity depends on organization so it's important to find a good team/manager that provides strong support.
Racially bias, wages not equal, labor intensive, strenous work no paid sick days
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.
It is tech. Most big tech companies have a lack of women in executive (or other roles). Not to excuse it, but also not to single it out.
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.
It's a very male dominated tech company. Overbearing men that aren't respectful of women.
