Okay, Amazon is big. We all know that. But it sometimes help to put into perspective how big Amazon really is.

So, I’m sorry, but here is the most businessinsider-ish Business Insider article on Amazon I have seen in quite a while: „7 insane facts that reveal how big Amazon has become“. Don‘t worry though, here are the highlights:

7.5% of Seattle’s working-age population are Amazon employees. […]

300,000 employees worldwide, and 40,000 in Seattle alone. […]

Amazon accounts for 43% of all online sales [in the US]. […]

1 out of every 4 US adults has Amazon Prime. […]

Amazon ships 1.6 million packages a day. […]

45,000 robots roam the floors of Amazon’s warehouses. […]

Amazon is more valuable than all major brick-and-mortar retailers combined. […]

Amazon’s $356 billion valuation is so big, it’s larger than Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, Macy’s, Kohl’s, JCPenney, and Sears combined.
