Current Employee - Executive Assistant in Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive salary
Smart people
Nice offices in Clausen
Efforts being made to raise sociability
Employees are encouraged to be proactive and 'go and fix stuff' that can turn into interesting projects. A lot of trust is given to employees

Cons

Work-life balance could do with an overhaul.. some employees seem to work very silly hours and I personally believe management could do more to counteract this - yes it's good that people are dedicated and hard working but I sometimes wonder if people work long because they feel it is expected - is it often for optics..?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead by example, more emphasis on Have Fun please!

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
