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 as an intern (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.

    I worked at Abebooks full-time (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 has a habit of favouritism and doing "off-sites" essentially creating a small team that's impossible to penetrate.
    No "AbeBooks" culture to speak of.
    HR is full of women.
