    Pros

    Good Software Engineering processes. You will learn a lot while working at Amazon that will be useful for the rest of your career.

    Smart people working there.

    Cons

    Job title deflation. I'm not usually bothered by things like job titles, but after many years in the same role, it can cause real problems with your career. It also means that you are underpaid compared to other companies. Getting a promotion appears to be close to impossible.

    As others have said, long hours are the norm. As well as being on call one week a month. The office being in an unpopular location in the city didn't help with the commuting time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Seattle interview process doesn't work well in London. People aren't used to studying for an interview for a couple of months before getting a job here like they do in the states, as well as the sheer number of tech companies here meaning that Amazon can't afford to be as choosy.

    The amount of churn going on in the office isn't normal, even for Amazon.

    Pros

    People are so good to work with. The environment makes you feel like you are at home. Work is pretty easy. Managers are friendly.

    Cons

    It is too tough to climb up the ladder. You should work for a very long time for a stabilized career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can have different bars for entry. The current system seems like anyone can get into any job in the organisation.
