    I worked at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a fabulous company to work for; Employees to management are great. The company teaches you a lot. If you have the opportunity to work for them, take the job.

    Cons

    There isn't anything to say. If there were something negative that had been experienced, it would not be significant enough to mention.
