Great work environment. Diverse, collaborative, and edgy

Training Manager (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

I worked at Borders full-time for more than 3 years

ProsDiversity, Autonomy, Work-life balance, smart co-workers, collaborative.

Borders has a great rep for acceptance of all people, regardless of age, gender, race, or lifestyle preferences. Indy atmosphere. Aggressive and autonomous work environment.

ConsBiggest con is that they are out of business! On a corporate and store level the comp was below average. Directionally, Borders went the wrong path and did not fully embrace new technologies which consequently led to the downfall of the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
