    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.

    I have been working at Borders part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Because the company was closing, I was able to have a lot of flexibility with my schedule and my hours.

    Cons

    It is a good thing that Borders closed it's doors for good. The company was falling apart from the executives down to the management.
