    I worked at Abebooks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent office, ok salary, showers in office

    Cons

    Not a "tech company" Pushes "...an Amazon company" a ton but actually receives no benefits from being an Amazon subsidiary Limited opportunity for growth Despite having a D&I (Diversity and Inclusion) team, upper management is comprised of 100% white male in their mid-30s to 50s Hidden factors in contract - did you know that if you leave within 2 years you need to pay back your signing bonus? Come on... Upper management...

    Pros

    Great environment Excellent team Part of Amazon Feeling of ownership In general is a great place to work, the location is also enviable in beautiful Victoria, BC

    Cons

    Things could move faster There is not a lot of space to grow The company is not huge and it has shrunk since I first joined, probably looking for efficiencies between the company and Amazon

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good job! You are a good team, you care about people and you try to be fair and keep everyone happy. Had a good time at Abebooks,

    I have been working at Abebooks

    Pros

    Great environment, nice people, HR is very helpful in different way. Company has a lot of potential to grow especially merged with Amazon.

    Cons

    Victoria is a relatively small market, company should move to some bigger city, like Vancouver, to seek for further development.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more employee-oriented. And company should tell employees their strategies of the year and plans for the future.

    I worked at Abebooks for less than a year

    Pros

    Sehr interessanter Job als Assistent eines Onlinemarketing-Managers im Bereich Bücher. Es gibt so viel, was man über Onlinemarketing lernen kann, vor allem, wenn man einen freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Vorgesetzten hat, so wie es bei mir der Fall war. Eine der besten Arbeitsumgebungen, die ich je hatte.

    Cons

    Management ist nicht immer da, oft scheinen sie nicht an der Meinung von Praktikanten interessiert zu sein.

    Advice to Management

    Wenn Sie etwas Interesse an Ihren Mitarbeitern zeigen, werden Sie es Ihnen mit viel mehr Arbeitskraft und -willen zurückzahlen.
