Recruitment Coordinator (Former Employee) –  LuxembourgMay 29, 2019
Amazon is a place that people either really love or really hate. The culture there is to work very hard, to innovate, to question, to come up with solutions, not just highlight any perceived problems.

You earn every, single penny you get paid, which to my mind is a good ethic. Amazon has a reputation of not having a good work/life balance and this can be true, but job satisfaction is also very important.

Amazon is a company that teaches you a lot about yourself, your abilities and how far you can push and be pushed. Its a tough experience, but one that will stand you in good stead moving forward....!
Pros
The people, the innovation
Cons
Poor share allocation, overly complicated systems

Weak managers and awful life-balance
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  LuxembourgDecember 1, 2019
Whether you will love or hate Amazon will depend on your manager.

While some says that Amazon is innovative and looking for long-terms solution, I got expressly told to look for the lazy short-term solution and stop looking to innovate.

The work life balance is awful. You will mostly eat at your desk in frond the computer.

Moreover, HR are stronly on your manager side and will block you if you try to move between jobs without your manager consent.
