Great place to learn and grow technically

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
