    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.
