Yes I was looking for a feedback like this. I am not too concerned about how amazon.com as a whole is doing and what consumers want or don't want to spend on Prime during a pandemic because AWS has been a different ball game. Also if I am understanding correctly the SA role is more "assisting with sales" type of a role, how much of hands on stuff is involved? and is lay-offs pretty frequent in the SA org?

Yes, AWS is very strong for Amazon. Their advertising and physical stores departments likely will take a hit. I'm sure their books, and four star operations will take awhile to get up to regular speed again. Plus, they have a lot of distribution issues now. However, Amazon is in so many different businesses, and so diversified, as I said, they will definitely survive. It's just that a lot of the hype by a lot of the sheeple reporters about the stock, isn't 100% true.

Amazon is safe as a company, but working there isn't safe since they always fire a ton of people. I doubt they increase layoffs, but they will continue to layoff a bunch for performance

Amazon isn't as safe as it gets... Consumer spending is falling off a cliff. People are just buying low margin goods, which is likely expensive for Amazon to ship. With 2 day delivery out the window, at least at the moment, why hold onto a prime subscription? Sorry to burst bubbles, but just trying to be realistic here...
