    I have only been in AWS so I am biased but I think AWS is better than retail.

      have fun working more hours for a company to feel superior to others.

      if you could have the same tc but a 40 hour work week, would you be a "slacker" too?

      My point is: you should be focusing on challenges, learning and career growth before wlb. But to each, its own, I guess...

      I agree with you but cant career growth be done in the 40 hour work weeks? There has to be a line somewhere and 40 hours is the standard expected work week.

      What if your team wants to work 80 hour weeks for career growth? Would you be happy at 80 hours?

      As for career growth, I am leaving my company because of that and Im not learning as much as Id like. But im not going to destroy my personal life for career growth.

      You answered by question though, Ill stay away from aws then.

      The work-life balance on my team in AWS has been fantastic. In the evenings I get to do whatever I want. I even have a side gig in the evenings!

    AWS *is* Amazon. Your question is AWS or Consumer....

      r/Iamverysmart unfortunately, this behavior very common in Amazon

      Seems common among sales-side AWS folks who do not even get what Amazon is

    I have heard that Amazon retail is a burn out culture but that AWS has pretty decent work life balance
