    I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any, I was looking for a new job within two weeks of starting there and glad I got out!

    Cons

    Where do I start, filthy office, broken desk furniture and the favoritism I saw between a director and a direct report/manager was unbelievable it was like watching a master and his puppy dog!

    I worked in technology and any suggestions on improvement are met with a resounding NO simply because my manager (the puppy dog) and his boss didn't understand the technology, plus how could you challenge what they did in the past?

    I was a full time salaried employee however I felt I was treated like an hourly employee.

    Advice to Management

    Dump all the middle managers and directors, *maybe* that'll help you get things straightened out but I doubt it.

    I worked at Baker & Taylor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can make an okay wage for this day and age and there is an incentive program. Most of the management team is fun.

    Cons

    Company isn't as stable as it used to be due to the poor economy and the advances of digital technology. Most of management has been there for many years and has their favorite people. Not a whole lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Smile. Most of all, be fair.
