Former Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)
Former Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Employees are empowered to make important decisions, it did not feel political, decisions acted on quickly and performance is measured objectively. Good career prospects

Cons

At least the UK offices are UGLY and they make no effort at all to improve them.
Pay is just barely in the market range.
Overall very frugal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a point on diminishing returns when saving money is more expensive than spending it. Example if a decision gets delayed because it is hard to get travel approval.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazon is a great place to learn from smart people, particularly at our remote development site. There's a lot of opportunity for motivated engineers to learn a lot about all aspects of software development and make a direct difference to the business.

    Cons

    Opportunities for promotion or different work are limited at our remote development site. And dealing with people in other sites is a common source of stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Think big" is a core competency at Amazon. Senior management may be thinking big, but it would be nice if they shared more about the vision with us as it's not always clear.
