I worked at Barnes & Noble part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The hours, employee programs, and core values all made this a satisfying company to work for. Everyone seemed committed to the well being of the company as a whole, which made for a motivating and positive work environment.

Cons

Management was disconnected and often unapproachable, so you never really knew where you stood. Not very much one on one attention.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time getting to know your employees and recognizing potential leaders.
