I have been working at Baker & Taylor full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Employee Book Sales, Great Co Workers, 5 day work week

Cons

No communication, No chance of advancement unless higher paid employees lose their job, Filthy work environment, No job security, Promises unfulfilled, No raises or very minimal raise, The longer I work at Baker & Taylor the further behind I get because salary does not keep up with cost of living, Insurance premiums etc...Great CEO, Mr. Morgan is a man of high morals and good intentions for the comapany and employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Deliver the Future...get rid of the past! Baker & Taylor needs change. Some Supervisors should be made to understand that they do not "own" their departments and personal life should be separate from work life. Favoritism should be addressed and dealt with quickly. No more Focus Meetings, no one will speak up about the "real issues"...anonymity is a must.

    I have been working at Baker & Taylor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Free 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicate. 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.
