    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Follett part-time

    Pros

    Interesting customer relations. Great direct managers. Flexible hours for student workers. Friendly staff. This is just one store. Others may be better. Also I think staff has changed.

    Cons

    Nepotism, lying among higher mgt made life miserable. Chaotic organization. Constantly changing company policies, etc. = irate customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, listen, pay attn to the staff (good and bad). Make it easier for direct mgt to fire horrible staff. Just because employees aren't hanging out after hours with mgt doesn't mean they aren't worthy.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Follett full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tradition of work life balance, many good people trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Work life balance and culture are on the decline. Strategy is pushing the company back to a 1980's approach to software development that is leading to delays and lowering quality. We used to build software iteratively and high quality. Consolidation of four companies into a single K12 company is adding layers of executives but ignoring or cutting people who actually do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Group Management is running the business. Good luck to FSC Management.
