    Avantages

    You'll be surrounded by some extremely intelligent people who really know what they're doing. These are world class people who will make you a better engineer.

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes the work you do feels a little insignificant due to the sheer size of the application code.

    Avantages

    -average pay, stock incentives make it a bit more attractive -some brilliant talented engineers -opportunity for business travel -fun corporate events

    Inconvénients

    - brilliant talent in the world not utilized. no room for creativity when everyone is stuck trying to patch Legacy code or working on huge amazon policy requirements. -corproate culture is stressed and over competitive and there is less feeling of teamwork or team support now. -many bright team members have recently left with little incentive to stay. -as another reviewer said the lack of diversity in sr. roles is...

    N'approuve pas le PDG

    J'ai travaillé chez Abebooks à temps plein plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    Good pay. Leadership principles. Nice office with great view of the ocean and harbour. Great coffee shop nearby on the harbour.

    Inconvénients

    You are all good as long as you don't try to shake the boat!! Let it run as it is, do not try to do something adventurous, nobody will bother you. As long as you start trying something new or challenge others to get their job done on time, you are out of this place in the name of "earn trust of the others".

    Avantages

    - High pay for Victoria. - You get to pretend like you work at Amazon on your resume.

    Inconvénients

    - You have to go on-call and put your life on hold every few weeks. - No engineering culture to speak of. Everybody's too busy putting out fires. Or they're rushing features out the door to compensate for the shame of working on such terrible code. - 20 years of accumulated legacy code with no plan to deal with it. - New code is anything goes, whatever a coop or a junior engineer wants! - Managers are just going through...

    Conseils à la direction

    Set your engineers to finding a way out of this mess and get to it already. What are you waiting for? Another 20 years of mind boggling slow feature development and an even uglier site?

    Point de vue neutre
    Approuve le PDG

    J'ai travaillé chez Abebooks à temps plein

    Avantages

    Abebooks is a very professionally run organization with very structured HR policies. It offers good benefits, great office space, and a competitive salary. For someone who is ambitions, and willing to relocate, the career growth opportunities are endless as it's part of Amazon, and you can eventually apply to all of their job postings.

    Inconvénients

    I found the goals and targets set by the senior management team often un-realistic given some the constraints on the company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue with all company meetings that maintain transparency in the company.

    J'ai travaillé chez Abebooks à moins d'un an

    Avantages

    - treated much like a regular software engineer, given real work - supported by mentor and manager alike - given work opportunities based on interests - friendly, helpful, knowledgeable software engineers - great culture, regular morale-building and team-building outings - inclusive: quarterly office-wide meetings inform employees - management cares a lot about what employees have to say

    Inconvénients

    - subject to Amazon's large company policies - engineering is mostly not feature-driven, closer to maintenance work sometimes

    Avantages

    Beautiful office overlooking the ocean Teams work together to support each other Focus on a positive work environment Opportunities to have fun and develop good relationships with coworkers Regular structured raises and reviews

    Inconvénients

    Small company, so internal opportunities for growth and development, moving to other teams, etc, are very limited, even as part of Amazon. Focus on frugality and need-to-do, not always room for creativity or relaxation

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to reward and develop the talent that you have as well as bringing in new candidates
