    I have been working at Better World Books part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    --I love the company culture. It's a very supportive, friendly environment. I work with interesting people. --Because the company is fairly small, it's easy to learn things about jobs or departments outside of your own capacity. --BWB does its best to treat employees well. --The company has a conscience. It donates incredibly generously to literacy causes and other charities.

    Cons

    --Sometimes, there is miscommunication between departments. --The company is still fairly new (11 years) so growing pains are to be expected, as the company fulfills its potential.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to retain the right people so that the company can continue to grow.
