Is the work culture at Amazon really that bad?

Depends on the team

How many companies have made news headlines for poor working conditions and culture as often as Amazon has in the past 5 or so years? Hundreds of thousands of people endure it, so I guess it can't be THAT bad, but I would not set high expectations.

In the warehouse yes

What made you think that work culture in Amazon is bad ? Just curious.

It’s not

From the 10+ people I know who work or have worked at various non-warehouse orgs there, it's quite variable based on the team. For example, one friend averaged 60+ hour weeks for 2.5 years in AWS before quitting in May, while another in AWS averaged maybe 40 over that same timeframe.

Was about to accept an offer with a smaller brand strategy firm and got a push to interview with Deloitte for a partnerships lead position that really matches my profile…but love the culture of the smaller firm. Go for big brand name and bigger check, or growth and connection at smaller firm with exciting work?? Obviously just in first round with Deloitte—but 25yrs old, so trying my best to think ahead and make smart moves!

Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!

Just finished my compensation meeting at work, got my promo and a really nice raise that pushed me into the six figure club. If you had asked me 5 years ago if I'd ever be making this much money or be having this much success I would have laughed. My wife is super happy for me and has been a big support but I'm secretly starting to resent the fact I settled for her. If I had known I could do this well in life I would have waited and done so much better than her 😕

Freelance question here! What’s a reasonable hourly rate to charge for some branding/UI work? For context, this is for a mobile app startup; UX is largely in place but they need help branding it and taking the visuals to the next level. I have a few years of design experience but a lot of it has been informal (side projects, work projects here and there) since I’m not technically a full-time designer. Any thoughts appreciated :)
