    I have been working at Barnes & Noble

    Pros

    Primarily the books and the environment of a bookstore. It was nice and quiet and the workload was light -- nothing too difficult.

    Cons

    Management was the worst I have ever seen. Everything was extremely hyped and petty. Micro-managing was the rule of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the environment and make the place a more comfortable place to work. Stop treating your employees like little children.
