I have been working at Follett full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Help students to further their college career
Support staff in Home Office to assist with financials, marketing is good
Work with professors, deans and executives at your college

Cons

Constant payroll
Buying office not responsive to local needs
Manager salary cuts

Advice to Management

Manager rewards have been stripped away over the past several years while our hourly staff has been rewarded with incentives and pay raises. Store managers are the hardest workers within the company but feel unappreciated.

    Pros

    management offers decent salaries but not when compared with what you have to endure.

    Cons

    A company that can't decide whether it is a large corporation or small business.
    A company that supposedly values integrity yet instead of enforcing policies when they are broken, they enforce them when their goals have been accomplished.
    very limited advancement potential due to upper management being comfortable in their positions and only promoting their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    be consistent in your policy enforcement and quit wasting time and efforts with human resource personnel that have no idea what actually goes on in a store and let management actually manage their stores.
