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

Pros

While in finance he is a great mentor and knows what he is talking about. He helps solve other issues and never talks down to his subordinates. He is a great example of what a Senior Management Leader should be. Quick to solve issues and problem solve.

Cons

Company doesnt realize how much he contributes

    I have been working at Follett full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of new and young people coming in.

    Cons

    Don't expect fair treatment. Expect bullying and belittling by senior management. Be careful HR protects the company and not the working employees. I was being bullied by a senior VP and complained and met with HR on going for a year when they finally said I was newer with the company and i should find a new job because senior management would not be asked to change or stop.

    Same Senior VP was treating an African American woman so badly and she got so frustrated she threatened to kill everyone in the department.... She was allowed to keep working and HR and Senior Management agreed to ignore her threats of bodily harm to everyone in the department. Eventually her position was eliminated she was fired, then they rehired a new person for the same position giving it a new title. Once again no care for the well being of the working employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Mgrs should retire already, and your HR department needs lots of work.
