Challenging and rewarding
Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  LuxembourgMay 23, 2018
I work with some of the smartest people in the world. The intensity and pace of work is very challenging and the compensation is generous to make up for this fact. There is a big problem with the availability of promotions and advancement and that is the only reason I have ever looked outside of the company.

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.
