Amazon compensation policy

The significant amount of Amazon's compensation package is through Stock compensation. Wondering what if the market crashed like 2008-11 or Amazon itself crashed? Will the compensation be adjusted through additional stocks?

    Paradoxically what you want as an Amazon employee with significant stock compensation is stock volatility at the right times.

    Yes it does. Now the question is what kind of socks have the most value to you? Do you prefer white socks, or black socks, athletic socks or dress socks? These are the questions that keep me up at night.
    Original post said socks, not stocks initially

    Yes. If the new low value puts your comp vesting each year under the target, they will give you additional stock vesting in each of those years (incl. current) to make up the difference (only assessed annually though). Though many ppl would still see a TC decrease because targets are much lower than what most ppl are actually getting these days.
