    I have been working at Follett part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment, great coworkers, get to be a part of campus life while still working

    Cons

    Low pay, corporate treats you like you're a slave, total lack of communication between stores and home office. Senior management continues to lay more and more people off then turn around and tell you you need to do three times as much work to compensate. Terrible technology that constantly fails and creates chaos between the store associates and customers. Constantly claim to be a 'family' company meanwhile treating like you're an unimportant number.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting people will only make your numbers look good for so long. We all resent you. Follett now has a reputation for being a company that uses you and then throws you away.
