I worked at Borders full-time for more than 10 years

Opportunity for advancement, culture, personal life balance, ability to integrate personal strengths into work description.

The company is no longer in business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Near the end..listen to the people along the front lines and on the retail floor to provide solutions to failing categories. They are most connected to the primary market...the consumer.

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

    Pros

    Diversity, 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.

    Cons

    Biggest 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.
