Amazon reportedly considers laying off 10k employees


Missing information

The article tells us that Amazon is known for its gruelling and cut-throat environment. Further, that staff attrition is achieved through what seems like the investment bank annual appraisal bottom 10% have to go approach.

However if salaries are significantly higher than the industry norm (are they?) then this would be useful to know.

In such circumstances Amazon's behaviour would not then seem unusual if not particularly pleasant.

Not particularly relevant but intended to illustrate my point, a thousand years ago when I was in a reasonably well paid job in a not awful if not great environment, the consultancy firm we were working with dangled a carrot but I declined because as a bit of a square peg, I preferred my then risk reward ratio to a potentially short term opportunity to earn a lot of money in a round hole.
