    I worked at Borders part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Discounts on books, music, DVDs, etc. Generally good about working with you if need be. It was a fairly standard retail job. It was good for me because I love books, but seeing as they seem to be going the way of the e-book and Amazon, the company is no more.

    Cons

    At time it felt like there were too many bosses present all the same time.

    Pros

    You could see the end coming.

    Cons

    the employee experience varied wildly by store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Next time employees make suggestions on how to improve your technology and compete, listening would be a good first step.
