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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

    Very interesting job as online marketing manager assistant in the field of books. there is so much to learn about online marketing especially if you have a friendly and helpful supervisor as I had. One of the best work environment I've ever had.

    Cons

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

    Management not always there, often looked not interested in interns' opinion.
