Global Benefits and Stock

The perks of being an Amazon employee don't stop at collaborating with great people on exciting and innovative projects. Amazon’s benefits support the needs of our diverse workforce and their family members, no matter what stage they’re at in their life or career. Depending on your location, country, job status and other requirements, some or all of the following benefits may be available to you.

Stay Healthy and Financially Fit

Amazon provides you and your family access to the medical care you need, and ways to save for the future.

Ready for the Unexpected

We know you can’t prepare for every scenario, which is why Amazon provides comprehensive coverage and protection to handle life’s unexpected accidents and surprises.

Time for You, When You Need It

Regular time away from work is essential for employees to recharge and renew. Employees accrue paid time off in addition to company paid holidays. And when you need more time for some of life’s bigger moments, such as caring for a new child or an ill family member, Amazon offers several paid and unpaid leave options.

Professional Growth

Amazon employees are encouraged to enter different roles, take on new challenges and learn new skills. Our internal transfer opportunities and expanding career development programs help employees build their career.

Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program is available to employees and their families for work-related or private issues, including anxiety and stress, legal or financial questions, family issues, child or elder care referrals and many other topics that are important to you.

Take Ownership

At Amazon, most employees have the ability to become owners of the company through the granting and vesting of Restricted Stock Units. Amazon is continually evaluating new ways to provide other types of ownership opportunities for all employees.
