    It is decent. Not the best but not the worst either.

    Amazon has great benefits. Holiday pay, vacation and personal time. They also have unpaid time that you accrue every quarter.

    You will have to give back all 401k money Amazon gave you if you stay less than 3 years with the company.

    Benefits are pretty good. Life insurance and disability are really good and cheap. Health insurance is one of the best.

    The benefits package is very competitive. Standard heath coverage (low premiums and low deductibles). Plenty of paid time off (vacation, personal, sick, and holiday). 401(k) match is low for the industry, but decent.

    generous signing bonus and RSU amount - though the RSU basically puts you on contract for four years

    As a contractor there weren't much benefits but job was very easy and rewarding. Management doesn't micromanage and gives clear assignments.

    Cost is fair, co-pays although are a bit high.
