Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

Pros

- Great people
- Great development environment
- Considerable latitude and flexibility accorded to engineers
- Continual "bar raising" - improve daily or fall to the side

Cons

- Slough
- Only one technology department (no opportunity for horizontal transfers)
- Other than internal turnover within existing groups, there is little sense that Amazon is interested in growing or investing in UK- or EU-based engineering teams
