Nadia Shouraboura, former technology vice president at Amazon in its global supply chain and fulfillment platform, worked at the e-Commerce giant for eight years and says the article surprised her.
"The article portrays Jeff as evil and ambitious," she told CNBC's Power Lunch. "He's a very fun person, he laughs a lot."
Shouraboura doesn't think working at Amazon was any more vigorous than working at an average startup, admitting it was hard work, long hours and took a lot of commitment.
"When I think about Amazon, I always think, 'It's Friday night and you have big plans. You messed up and you have customers who missed their order,' " she said.
"What do you do? Cancel your plans and take care of the customers? Yes, you put that up front, before personal plans. Is it terrible? I don't think so."
