Does Amazon Have Good Work-Life Balance and Flexibility?
  • "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. " - anon2978
  • "Amazon Media Group has a very flexible shceudle for their sales staff. Many hours are spent on the road traveling so there is time allowed to work from home." - EcommGal
  • "Hours and travel are sometimes flexible, and at other times, non-negotiable. Great maternity leave, but don't expect to work less than 12 hour days during the week...and possibly weekends, too. Brutal environment." - FirstTimeMom2017
  • "Really hard to give a figure as some teams are great at it and some are horrendous, with very long hours and strict rule" - FairyTeaTime
  • "Expected to work at least 70 hours a week. Admonished for taking any time and expected to respond at all hours." - Dee Dee
