    Pros

    Short commute with low traffic

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours, regardless of family responsibilities. Not being available 7x24x365 is considered poor performance. They walk the fine line when it comes to what are legal employment practices.

    Advice to Management

    reduce management, reward emplyoyees for hard work.

    I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time

    Pros

    Agile and nimble enough to meet challenges faced by retail customers easily and successfully. Loyal local workforce who pull together to ensure targets are hit.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation and dynamic leadership means that the company struggles to move with the times and has an old fashioned approach which potentially puts the business at risk in a challenging retail environment.
