    Pros

    Great coworkers, lots of interesting and educated customers. New conversation every day. A great environment for bibliophiles. Good job for college kids or retirees.

    Cons

    Too much corporate control of things that could have been handled at a store level. Too slow to adapt to the internet.


  2. It was fun while it lasted.

    Pros

    You could see the end coming.

    Cons

    the employee experience varied wildly by store.

    Advice to Management

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