    Pros

    If work is the most important thing to you right now, Amazon UK is a good place to do it. Incredibly fast pace of growth means a large amount of varied and interesting projects to take responsibility in with equally driven people. However you'll be expected to juggle this alongside your day-to-day role with no impact on your category deliverables, hence the need to be able to absolutely dedicate yourself to the job if you want to get anywhere and not have a breakdown. You will give up plenty of evenings and weekends if you intend to be there for a few years.

    Promotion can be achieved but you need to be political - identify tools or fixes that will improve most categories, figure out a scalable way to deliver them and start shouting about them. Peer reviews and cross-category influence are key to progression whatever level you're at. True of every company to an extent, but you'll quickly see how Amazon takes that and everything else to the nth degree.

    Cons

    The demanding environment combined with the relative rarity of promotions means that many level 6 and 7 managers are hired from outside the company rather than being promoted from within. The effect of this limits continuity planning and actually attracts some very average managers, because Amazon isn't like most workplaces. If you end up with a one of the poorer managers, you're going to struggle. Make sure you speak to/meet your prospective manager before agreeing to join a category.
