Does Amazon offer a wellness program?

Pros

I was wary moving to a large corporation after working with a small design agency. But I have been pleasantly surprised that after a year working at Amazon, I have consistently had plenty of autonomy to drive my design projects, mentorship and support from the design community whenever needed, brilliant people working with me to problem solve and push the boundaries, and opportunities around every corner to grow my skills and expand my community. I'm lucky to work directly under a design manager on a creative team, and I am assigned out as the UX Lead and dedicated designer to an engineering team for a variety of products (small and large) that I can own myself. Therefore I have all the support and critique and benefits of working within a creative studio environment, and all the unique challenge and autonomy to drive my own projects and work directly with an engineering team and stakeholders. My manager is exceptionally transparent and encouraging, and has opened pathways for me to do my best work and be seen and acknowledged for my achievements. I take advantage of events and networking opportunities on campus, and a lot of my coworkers have become some of my closest friends. The compensation goes without saying, the health and wellness benefits are exactly what I need.

Cons

The thing I struggle the most is Amazon's size and socio-economic impact on the city of Seattle and the world. That said, to me the positives out-weigh the negatives. With the current pace of technology, I am constantly questioning the problems we are solving with our inventions. For me, I make sure to align myself to projects I can stand behind. Furthermore, Amazon regularly encourages you to contribute tough questions, critical thinking and constructive criticism to weigh in on your organization or department decisions and direction.
