    50 percent match to 4%

    no complain, standard for big companies

    They only match half of what you put in and only up to 4%. How lame is that? Also, and this is a BIGGIE, you're not vested for 3 years. WTF?

    two year vesting period. Maximum 4% contribution to match 50%. Not really worth the effort, but no other retirement benefits are available at Amazon. This is the worst benefit provided.

    just 2% match of the base so it is not a lot. Need to work for 3 years for amazon to match 401k

    Comparable to other comps ok

    They have good matching plans.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Software Engineer in Seattle, Washington State

    It was ok, overall good

  • Sep 24, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Systems Development Engineer in Herndon, Virginia

    It exists, and they do match, but not very much.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Manager in Herndon, Virginia

    The matching could be more generous. Other companies I have worked for have matched a higher percentage to a higher overall cap.
