I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great environment and some of the best customers. There is a book loan program so you can read new and bestselling books immediately.

Cons

The opportunity to advance is very slim, even between districts. Payroll is almost non-exist so managers end up becoming booksellers.

    I have been working at Barnes & Noble full-time

    Pros

    The culture is good with some perks that give the company a "dot com" feel to it. In a great neighborhood. Pay is good.

    Cons

    The company keeps shifting priorities and makes organizational changes frequently which makes the employees scrambling to keep up and prove themselves over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and tell the employees what's going on. The Palo Alto team and NY technology teams need managers that want collaboration.
