NTY conducted anonymous interviews with more than 100 current or former Amazon employees. The article reports on Amazon’s infamous conference calls on vacation, anonymous peer evaluation system and inconsiderate practices against employees going through personal hardships. One former employee even described company’s culture as “purposeful Darwinism.”

In response to the NYT article, Jeff Bezos dismissed all negative claims against the company as a hasty generalization at best.
