Great equal opportunity workplace. Many of our most talented employees are females, and they are recognized as such.

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.

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.

The benefits are good (they pay 100% of insurance (including family coverage). If the women is in sales, marketing, HR, or administrative; I'd say "go for it". But, for technical women, you have no change for advancement.

Maybe. It is ok for women in "traditional (e.g. sales, marketing, HR, even PM). But, women Software Developers are not taken seriously. You are given grunt work, even if you have more experience than the rest of the team combined. The only exception was one woman who participates in Brogrammer activities. Even so, she is not promoted, just not excluded.

The higher you are in the R&D organization, the better. Women at the manufacturing sites don't have the same opportunities.

The people are great and the mission was worth it, but the employees did not feel valued by the company. Communication was poor and oftentimes responses to complaints were answered unsatisfactorily with "just suck it up" or "there are worse things."

If you are technical or working in a predominately female group then you will have a good time, any engineering or other teams and you will have to deal with a lot a minor but consistently uncomfortable environment.

Maybe. as specified below.
There is an environment that is fundamentally unfriendly to female characteristics. Mixed messages abound between "speak up for yourself" and, "no one wants to work with her because she's not nice." Also, it seems they condone judging people (women, minorities, etc) under the guise that they are not "technical" enough, even when people have other valuable skills.
