Amazon earnings beat, do employees get the rewards ?

Amazon has been doing amazingly well. Does that translate to more money (pay hike and more RSUs) for employees during the yearly reviews ??

    Your RSUs become more valuable as the stock prices go up. My boss got his initial grant at 280 USD 5 years ago and hasn't sell any of his stock... He could retire tomorrow and chill.

    Since a large part of the comp is in stock, when the stock price goes up, pay automatically goes up. That’s the whole point of RSUs.

    Definitely not. It is better that this spike is after reviews and not before so we are granted more shares because of a dollar target.

    Annual reviews are over. A few people haven’t been told their new comp, but this news doesn’t change much. A lot of people have stock vesting in a few weeks so this could be 1000s of dollars in the value of those shares, but we don’t get more when there is good news (we get fewer when they do grant at review and promo because of the higher price).

      I wonder if they're inclined to be less generous knowing that they're going to beat earnings expectations.

    No it's just the opposite. You get a pay boost when stock falls and royally fucked on promo comp when it goes up. Amazon tells you the stock is going up, then gets mad and lowballs your next level when it actually does

    It means less/no merit increases for the foreseeable future.

    As people say, it’s indirect, but is powerful. My signing bonus was at 113. All those good earnings translated into $$

    More RSUs would increase their stock based comp expenses and drive down profits...
