    I have been working at Baker & Taylor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free advance copy books -- but only if you knew the right people to give you some. Sometimes, a free B movie (advance copy) if you were lucky.

    Cons

    No communications from top management. Employees learned about stuff through the newspaper. Even middle managers were kept clueless and couldn't answer questions from employees. Huge turnover in many departments and major unhappy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. communicate. communicate. communicate. In 10 years on same floor as top management, I think I saw one or two once or twice a year. MBWA (Management by Walking Around)? Epic fail.

    Pros

    Low impact work- not too physically demanding
    Good coworkers and a congenial work environment
    Not a life or death job
    Good flexibility in certain departments and areas

    Cons

    Poor pay rate
    Employees expendable
    No motivation to succeed
    Raises do not exist
    Horrible benefits, getting cheaper by the year

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and in your employees, everyone will be happier for it. Right now, B&T's motto could be "Well, you went with the lowest bidder..."
