    Pros

    Good work life balance. Decent pay. Good flexibility with work hours if you don't work in the warehouse.

    Cons

    The management are clueless. Employee moral as deminished. Job security is questionable with more and more schools going to digital media. Limited to no chance of promotions or raises even with work well done.

    Pros

    At one point in time this was an OK company to work for. The benefits are good. There is a cafeteria on site but only open until 2.

    Cons

    The company is struggling with declining sales. Instead of cutting the fat in middle management, they are firing line staff. Every office with a door is filled while at least half of the cubicles sit empty. Talent is walking out the door. The Follett legacy is dying with this generation of Folletts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are so many ways you can save money. You are totally out of touch with your business. Sit down and speak to your employees - not your managers, but your employees. Quit managing by intimidation. You have workforce living in fear - Don't treat your employees like this. The founder of the company would be ashamed at you for what is happening. Preserve the legacy with integrity, not with bullying.
