    Current Software Development Manager II in Seattle, Washington State

    Good: Decent stock bonus.
    Bad: Have to run to stay on top.

    The best thing g is 401k, and owning stock in company depending on how long you work.

    Current Business Analyst II in Seattle, Washington State

    Best - Low Medical premiums for employee (HSA/High deductible option-$1500/year) and the company contributes $500/year to your HSA also.
    Worst - the 401k matching could be better - only 50% match up to the first 4% of your salary contributed to your 401k

    health insurance is the best package amazon offer

    Amazon isn't a company that gives it's employees too many perks in the name of frugality. The most eccentric thing the company does for you is give you a free bus pass. Oh, you also get this 10% discount on things shipped and sold by amazon, but that only goes up to the first 1000 dollars worth of things purchased on the site (effectively making the discount 100 dollars a year.)

    Once you've been there a few years, time-off accrual is fairly generous. Finding time in your schedule to use that vacation time is another matter, however.

    Current Producer in Seattle, Washington State

    The benefits package (medical) is a good deal as a single person, but once you add in a spouse or kids, it gets expensive.

    Current Soft Dev Engineer in Seattle, Washington State

    Subsidized health insurance, 401k, paid time off

    Former Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    Limited PTO, including not getting the day after Thanksgiving off. Medical insurance is so-so.
