This company sucked, even after 10+ years there

Production Manager, Marketing (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsFree advance copy books -- but only if you knew the right people to give you some. Sometimes, a free B movie (advance copy) if you were lucky.

ConsNo communications from top management. Employees learned about stuff through the newspaper. Even middle managers were kept clueless and couldn't answer questions from employees. Huge turnover in many departments and major unhappy employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate. communicate. communicate. communicate. In 10 years on same floor as top management, I think I saw one or two once or twice a year. MBWA (Management by Walking Around)? Epic fail.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Baker & Taylor

    Pros: Short commute with low traffic Cons: Expected to work long hours, regardless of family responsibilities. Not being available 7x24x365 is considered… Advice to Senior Management: reduce management, reward emplyoyees for hard work. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
