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.

    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.

  2. Great Place to Dedicate Working Life

    Advice to Management

    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.
