Amazon.com Inc. shareholders should vote to reject the pay packages of Chief Executive Officer Andy Jassy and other top leaders, two influential investor advisory firms recommended, citing massive stock grants executives are set to receive regardless of how well the company performs in the coming years. 

Shareholders later this month will have an opportunity to express their views on how the e-commerce giant compensates its recently reshuffled executive ranks. Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. and Glass Lewis & Co., which advise investors on corporate governance issues, both recommend shareholders vote no in the non-binding vote.
